Turkish Airlines THY orders seven more Boeing 777-300ERs taking tally to 12 – Bangalore Aviation

Turkish Airlines THY orders seven more Boeing 777-300ERs taking tally to 12

Turkish Airlines has an extensive fleet-renewal programme including up to 35 long-haul jets and it appears that Boeing is benefiting from Turkish THY Airline’s leasing experience with India’s Jet Airways.

Turkish Airlines has finalised an order for an additional seven Boeing 777-300ER (Extended Range) airplanes valued at $1.9 billion at current list prices. This order is in addition to the five 777-300ERs that Turkish Airlines ordered in April 2009, bringing their total 777-300ER orders to 12. The aircraft will be powered by General Electric GE90 engines.

However, these aircraft will not be as luxurious as the ones leased from Jet Airways.

This order will be posted to the Boeing Orders and Deliveries Web site when it is refreshed on July 30.
