Turkish Airlines to take A330-200F test aircraft


As report in Flight ....

The CEO of TK Temel Kotil says Turkish expects to receive its two A330-200Fs in September and October. He says that when Airbus offered the test aircraft, at a discount, the carrier accepted because it believed it was equivalent to the production aircraft.

"It's cheaper. It's a good machine. The A330 is an established aircraft," Kotil told ATI during a Star Alliance event in Sao Paulo.

He adds that, for cargo operations in particular, taking a test aircraft "is not a big deal".

Kotil says Turkish plans to operate its A330-200F on cargo services to Asia, in particular China. According to Flightglobal's ACAS database, Turkish's freighter fleet currently consists of four Airbus A310-300Fs.

Some more update in the article about the 10 new A330-300...

Kotil says Turkish will also take delivery in October of the first of 10 new A330-300 passenger aircraft the carrier ordered last year. He says the carrier will receive four A330-300s in the fourth quarter alone and subsequently additional aircraft will be delivered at a rate of about one per month.

Hurray! I love flying the A330, I wonder where the A330F will take us on adventures to  

The only time there is too much fuel onboard, is when you're on fire!

Also in the article, TK CEO clearly states flying to more destinations and increasing freqs. to Asian cities. Summers the 333s will do some short hops to Europe and domestic trips also. 333s will have 30J/289Y seats.
Let's see with the introduction of 332F/333/77W this October how extensive will be the planned branding change?

No idea ..... Sad it would have been based in my home airport HYD.

Now even their site (www.flyington.com) is down. But Wiki has some old information about them   including this pic .....

...which, ironically, incorrectly shows the plane with RR Trents.
