The main target market from India for TK
are the UK-FRANCE-GERMANY and USA bound pax. From IST
, Indian pax from DEL will fly with 1-2 hr transit to JFK
nonstop from IST
on TKs A 343s. If their fares are good then they should do well from India...only problem is that they dont have daily frequencies which their main competition has + not a good f-flyer program!
So their marketing campaign better be aggressive and their fares cheap otherwise they will be following LX
out of DEL. However TK
has said that they expect this route to take 2 years to mature. This I read from THE HINDUBUSINESSLINE online edition as well as that A 332 bit of news!!!
sold all their A 313s to MAHAN AIR of IRAN? I recall reading that many months ago in Airliner World and Flight Intl magazines alongwith the fact that whatever options (3-5) remaining they had on A 343 orders, they have converted all of them to A 332s which will be replacing their A 310s!!!
