Turkish Airlines is checking out A380s for China routes

Posted 18 February 2014 · Add Comment

Turkish Airlines could be operating A380s by the summer. UK online news service Flightglobal reported today that the fast growing airline has been making enquiries about wet-leasing four of the superjumbos.

Late last year Turkish CEO, Dr Temil Kotil said he was happy with the Boeing 777 for his long haul activities. Having previously leased B777 Kotil went on to make orders.
Flightglobal said the A380 leases – aimed at supporting Turkish’s Chinese operations – would be from another airline.
Operators typically require two to three A380s to serve a given city pair, with the number depending on the distance of the flight and how fast an airline can turn around the plane.
