Turkish Airlines takes delivery of 125th Boeing aircraft

Turkish Airlines has celebrated a milestone with the delivery of its 125th airplane purchased from Boeing – a Next-Generation 737-900ER – and one of 12 airplanes the Turkish flag-carrier will take delivery of this year.

Boeing and Turkish Airlines’ relationship stretches back to 1968 when the airline first purchased one McDonnell Douglas DC-9. In 1974, it began operating the first of the Boeing 7 Series, taking 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 Dr. 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.”
