The airline also announced that it transported a total of 673,000 tonnes of cargo and mail, with 376 aircraft currently on the ground as of May 2022.
The company serviced an impressive 6.3 million passengers and travellers and transported 144,000 tonnes of cargo and mail in May of 2022 alone.
Increased passenger footfall
"Total passenger numbers increased from 5.9 million in May 2019 to 6.3 million in the same month of 2022," according to the statement released by the airline.
In response to the announced figures, THY General Manager Bilal Eksi noted that while the global aviation industry had come to a halt during the coronavirus pandemic, Turkish Airlines did not and managed to retain impressive numbers throughout.
"We worked knowing that we'd go back to our success-targeting strategy with a vengeance. These were the days we aimed for. Our May figures reflect that our ambitions and dreams have begun to materialise," Eksi stated to local reporters.
