Turkish Airlines, the fourth largest carrier in Europe, does not have enough aircraft to meet its expansion plans and may acquire the A380, chairman Hamdi Topcu told national newspaper The Star newspaper on Friday (Sept 24). The Istanbul-based airline is looking at the feasibility of both the Airbus A380 or Boeing’s 747-8. Topcu reiterated the flag carrier’s fleet target of 184 aircraft in 2011, from 142 currently. The airline has orders for 89 aircraft, 24 of which are wide-body aircraft.
