Turkish Airlines confirms planned large order

Turkey's flag carrier Turkish Airlines has made a decision to buy 25 Boeing B787-9 aircraft, known as the Dreamliner, with an option for another five more aircraft from US aerospace giant Boeing Company, Boeing said in a statement on Monday.

Turkish Airlines has confirmed plans to buy 50 firm and 10 optional wide-body aircraft from Airbus and Boeing.

"This order strengthens and expands the long-lasting partnership between Airbus, Turkish Airlines and Turkey overall".

Turkish Airlines, which is 49-percent owned by the government through a wealth fund, has grown exponentially in recent years in a rise strongly supported by Erdogan to create a national champion.

"We are extremely proud at Airbus to count Turkish Airlines as a new A350 operator, the world's most modern and efficient widebody aircraft." said Eric Schulz, Chief Commercial Officer, Airbus'.
