Turkish Airlines Boeing 777-300(ER) arriving at Toronto Lester B. Pearson International Airport (YYZ) from Istanbul Havalimani Airport (IST) on a wondrous Sunday afternoon 2019. Delivered in June of 2016, this long-haul aircraft finds its place among 33 Turkish 777-300(ER)s; however, as the world's largest airline by passenger destinations (excluding subsidiaries), their fleet extends well beyond this figure. With a diverse 319 aircraft from both Airbus and Boeing, the two most numerous components to this fleet serve as narrow body, short-medium haul aircraft: 68 Airbus A321-200s and a whopping 98 Boeing 737-800s. With this, the company allocates half of its fleet to just two aircraft models. Looking ahead, Turkish Airlines is expected to purchase 84 Airbus A321-neos (New Engine Option) and 63 Boeing 737 MAX 8 and 9s, augmenting their already impressive fleet by 147 new aircraft. Also on order is a sole A330-300 (to join their existing fleet of 39 long-haul A330-300s) and a whopping 30 cutting-edge A350-900s. Not to be undone, 26 new Boeing Dreamliners (787-9 variant) will complement their existing 787s, providing the airline with a near equal number of ultra-long range, state of the art, wide-body aircraft from both Boeing and Airbus. With their slogan "Widen Your World", Turkish is clearly aiming for more planes, more flights, and wider smiles. Enjoy the image!
