Turkey’s national flag carrier Turkish Airlines announced it will launch regular flights to Vancouver, Canada in a statement posted on the Public Disclosure Platform on Tuesday.
Turkish Airlines was founded in 1933 with five aircraft in its fleet. Now they have over 340 aircraft, including passenger and cargo planes. Last year, the company carried 75.2 million passengers. Their new goal is to expand even more in international waters.
The new Turkish Airlines route
Turkish Airlines have been planning to expand its reach in North America for a while. After the launch of the latest destinations in Mexico, including Cancun, in August, the airline is now planning even more destinations in the USA like Las Vegas and Orlando.
Now, a new route to Vancouver, Canada has been confirmed. They announced this on the Turkish Airlines public disclosures page:
“The Incorporation has decided to start operating scheduled flights, based on market conditions, to Vancouver, Canada.”
Currently, Turkish Airlines’ only Canadian destinations are Montreal and Toronto. With this addition of a direct line between Istanbul and Vancouver, they are expanding even more. A lot of details are yet to be confirmed like the schedule, launch date, and aircraft type.
The new Airbus A350
Turkish airlines revealed that its four new Airbus A350 will be flying to:
- Seoul, Korea
- London, England
- Dubai, United Arab Emirates
- Los Angeles, USA
The new Airbus A350 on the route to Seoul will replace the old A330. This is one of Turkish Airlines’ most popular routes, as it flies 11 times a week. They plan to implement this change by August 2020.
“We are extremely proud at Airbus to count Turkish Airlines as a new A350 operator, the world’s most modern and efficient widebody aircraft. This order strengthens and expands the long-lasting partnership between Airbus, Turkish Airlines and Turkey overall,” said Eric Schulz, Chief Commercial Officer in an Airbus press release.
