In a recent announcement, Turkish Airlines has revealed its plan to expand its fleet of widebody planes by acquiring 10 additional Airbus A350-900 aircraft. This strategic move will effectively double the company's existing fleet of widebody planes.

Purchases will take place between 2025 and 2027

Although the airline has not yet disclosed any financial details pertaining to this deal, it has stated that the purchase of these jets will be carried out in three different batches between 2025 and 2027, following approval from the company board.

Presently, the airline boasts of 14 A350-900s and 20 Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners in its fleet of international carriers.

The Airbus A350-900, which is currently valued at 317.4 million euros ($343 million), is anticipated to be available at a special discounted price for large orders.

Plans to acquire up to 600 jets over the next decade

Turkish Airlines had earlier announced its plans to acquire 600 new aircraft over the next decade. However, reports indicate that these orders have been postponed due to issues related to engine production and quality on both Boeing and Airbus planes.

Turkish Airlines plans to upgrade their current fleet

Despite these challenges, Turkish Airlines is determined to upgrade its fleet to a total of 435 aircraft by the end of this year and has a goal of transporting 170 million passengers per year over the next ten years.

COVID-19 made little impact to the Turkish flight industry

Despite the unprecedented impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the aviation industry, Turkish Airlines has managed to serve approximately 82 million passengers in the year 2022 and has aims to increase this number to 85 million by the end of this year.
