Aksam - Turkey’s national flag carrier, Turkish Airlines (THY), has entered into a strategic collaboration deal with aerospace giant Boeing for joint projects in a number of sectors related to the aviation industry.

Signed by THY chairman Ilker Ayci and Boeing vice-chairman Raymond Conner at the Boeing facilities in Seattle, USA, the deal involves the forming of several commissions to work on joint development, training and several other areas to increase the competitiveness of Turkey’s aviation industry on a global scale and support for Turkey’s research and technology capabilities and aerospace infrastructure.
