Turkish Airlines announced the delivery of a new Boeing aircraft, one of 12 airplanes that the Turkish flag-carrier will take delivery of this year.The latest edition of the aircraft is a Next-Generation 737-900ER which is a short-to-medium range twinjet that increases the capability of the Next-Generation 737 family. Today's 777-300ER is the most fuel and cost-efficient airplane in its class departing on time 99.5 percent of the time making it the most reliable twin-aisle aircraft in the world.

Turkish Airlines, which first purchased one McDonnell Douglas DC-9 from Boeing in 1968, today celebrates a milestone with the delivery of the airline's 125th airplane purchased from Boeing. In 1974 it began operating the first of the Boeing 7 Series, taking a delivery of two 727-200s. Since then, Turkish has grown to become one of the world’s leading carriers and currently operates a mix of Boeing 777-300ERs and 737 Next-Generation airplanes.

“Boeing has played a pivotal role in the development of Turkish Airlines and these deliveries continue to enable this airline to compete, expand and reach new short and long-range destinations nonstop from our hubs in Istanbul.” said Ahmet Bolat, Chief Investment and Technology Officer, Turkish Airlines. “We are committed to offering our passengers on every route the best flying experience possible and we deliver on that promise as the 777 and 737 provide comfort and convenience in spacious cabins, all matched with unrivalled reliability.”

“We are incredibly proud of our long standing relationship with Turkish Airlines which now stretches back over 40 years, with 125 airplanes delivered.” commented Todd Nelp, vice president of European Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “Turkish Airlines’ growth throughout our relationship has been incredible and we look forward to continuing to support its future success.”
