Re: Turkish Aviation June 2020

It worries me that the daily infections is rising in Turkey again. Lowest daily infection was between 800 - 900 people, IIRC. Now it is around the 1400. I really hope that the daily infection rate goes down again, otherwise this will not be a good thing for Turkey, the Turkish airlines, the Turkish...

Re: Turkish Aviation June 2020

why TK is going to start to EWR while it operates to JFK?? Even though they are pretty close to each other, the NY metro area is big enough to support both flights. EWR not only gets NewYorkCity, but all of New Jersey and even some Philadelphia traffic for TK. Also you have to think about connectin...

Re: Turkish Aviation June 2020

Those were called as 2 runway pairs, not all 4 of them could operate at the same time. One primary and one back-up of 2 sets. I hope this explains it. This 3rd runway opened today does not have a back up adjacent runway. If all goes planned in the future, there will be two more North/South and one ...

Re: Turkish Aviation May 2020

Could anyone explain me why TK has such low operating costs? They usually have very low fares on their flights. I think one of the thing that really helps is that the majority of their income is in foreign currencies like USD/EUR and most of their expenses in Turkish Lira. (I don't have the exact n...

Re: Istanbul new airport - latest pictures and discussion thread

be able to pay the 800+ Million euro fee to the government yearly. I can understand that, however, for a traveler and user experience, this really annoys me (as the prices are really really way insanely expensive) and start to prefer DXB terminal 3 as a connection airport with better service and re...
