"Flights between Istanbul and Shanghai, and Istanbul and Beijing are not enough. I will speak to Chinese officials to raise the number of flights," Temel Kotil said Wednesday during a visit in Beijing.
Kotil, director general of the Turkish Airlines (THY) said the company was planning seven passenger flights and seven cargo flights a week to Beijing, Shanghai and Guangcou.
THY carried 17 million passengers between January and October 2007, a 16.6 percent increase the same period last year and the airline expects a 3.5 billion USD turnover at the end of 2007.
THY is set to become in March 2008 a member of the Star Alliance, world's largest airline alliance.
