Turkish Airlines says to add 20 new wide-body aircraft to fleet in 2011

Turkey's national air carrier company THY Deputy Director Faruk Cizmecioglu said on Friday that 20 new wide-body aircraft will join THY fleet in 2011.

THY organized a tour for 15 journalists assigned in Anatolia aiming to introduce technical structure and service policies of THY.

"THY will double its wide-body aircraft fleet in a year when all 20 of the aircraft come. THY has never recorded a 30 percent growth in one year. Such investments will boost our turnover to around 8 billion USD," Cizmecioglu said.

Cizmecioglu said there were 150 aircraft in THY's fleet actually but the number continuously changed as some new ones came and some of them left the fleet.

Cizmecioglu said they would continue efforts to promote THY, adding "THY's promotion budget in 2011 will be higher than the budget of 2010, which was 70 million USD."
