THY to provide training to IsDB member countries

The Islamic Development Bank (IsDB) has signed an agreement with Turkish Airlines (THY) to enhance cooperation among 57 members of the bank. As part of the memorandum of understanding, THY will provide aviation training to the bank’s member countries, which will include providing support for the creation of new regional airlines in areas such as Guyana and Suriname.

“Turkish Airlines will cooperate within the framework of the parties’ social responsibility program including but not limited to, the transportation and distribution of Haj meat to the poor or in other areas like health and education,” the bank said in a statement.

“This is a landmark step in many ways,” says IsDB president, Ahmad Mohamed Ali. “This deal will enhance cooperation between Islamic countries, and the IsDB and Turkish Airlines would like to facilitate this cooperation. Turkish Airlines has vast experience and with its success story, the flag carrier will definitely be an excellent model for other countries.”

“Turkish Airlines is willing to share all its extensive experience with other countries and we believe that this MoU will open new doors to provide synergy in this world,” said Turkish Airlines CEO Temel Kotil.
