Dünya – Turkey’s flag carrier, the Turkish Airlines (THY), will spread its wings to cover four new destinations in Europe, Africa and Southeast Asia, according to a statement made by the company to the Public Disclosure Platform (KAP).
The flights to Salzburg in Austria, Luxor and Aswan in Egypt and Colombo in Sri Lanka will bring the number of THY’s total routes close to 250, the number which the successful airline expects to hit by the end of the year.
THY aims to be the first airline to enter the world’s “Top 100 Global Brands” list, according to its Director General, Temel Kotil. Kotil speaking at the gathering of a business association said that THY’s continuous growth at a pace of 20 percent per year was unparalleled and the company had already achieved the goals it had set out to achieve in the 2023.
Crowned the “Best Airline in Europe” twice in the last two years by the airline authority Skytrax, THY carried 32.8 million passengers in the first 10 months of 2012, up 19.7 percent from a year earlier.
