Can anybody remember the name of a Turkish Charter airline from the 90's?
They used to have a fleet of 757-200 and MD83 aircraft,which were painted red in colour.
One of the big Turkish travel companies owned them,but went into liquidation in the 90's.

Any chance you are thinking of Birgenair? The mainly operated flights for Öger Tours and ceased operations in 1996 after a crash of a 757 in the Dominican Repulbic. Never operated MD83 though.

Quoting Semobeila (Reply 1):

It was Sunways!
I flew CWL-Antalya with them in the 90's ,and could'nt for the life of me,remember the name.
On one particular day of the week,the ramp at CWL would have 2x MD83 and the 757 from Sunway at the same time.
Used to offer absolutely giveaway holidays at silly prices,which was to be their downfall.
If i remember rightly,a few of the aircraft were seized at UK airports,due to non payment of Fees,Fuel etc.
I was talking to the pilot on the 757,coming back from Antalya to CWL,and he was British.
He was'nt having much luck,as he'd previously worked with Air Belgium who went under,and then of course with Sunways!
