I can't seem the find the photos, but IIRC, they will be mostly red/burgundy with the "flow" theme, similar to the colors of the new uniforms.

They’ll be using that time to teach ground school to the mechanics and airport staff so they are ready for first day of operations. Time to do proving runs for the aviation authorities as well. Quite common for airlines to do this to train their staff before starting flights.

Correct. IIRC, in the past; with other types of aircraft; this time frame has been shorter than 2 weeks, more like 7-10 days. I guess a few days is not that much of a difference but I remember; not two weeks. That is why I asked.

If the delivery can be made on 25th (US West Coast time, say around mid-day), tC-llA can be expected in IST sometime late hours during the 26th. So that will be 4 days till the end of June. Count another 7 days at the beginning of July: that makes up to 11 days (max).

My prediction is that TC-LLA will be stationed at ISL (AHL Airport) for most of that period, and will fly back to IST for her first commercial flight.

Canadian Civil Aviation Authority offered 2 slots per week for YVR IST
It is up to TK to accept it now
TK’s request for additional slots at Toronto and Montreal was declined
I sincerely hope TK goes forward with Vancouver launch, it will be a good start for a new beginning

Landed on the new airport last Monday and will fly back to Prague this coming Monday. My arrival experience was very positive. Shot some videos as well. I will try to do the same on departure and see if I can put together a video with my personal experience.

Because I mentioned my positive experience about the airport on Facebook I have been getting accused of being a Akp member. Everything is black or white according to some Turks.

It doesn't sound like Canada to enforce a location (YVR) where TK can use these supposed extra 2x weekly frequencies.

Canada's latest increases with countries like the U.A.E, Qatar, Jordan, Algeria or Egypt have included frequency increases to any points in Canada.

https://www.newswire.ca/news-releases/c ... 57261.html

https://www.newswire.ca/news-releases/c ... 65859.html

Why would it be different with Turkey?

You need to elaborate.

Do you mean no slots were available at YYZ or YUL due to congestion? If TK requested a 5 or 6 pm arrival at YYZ and was denied by the GTAA, that is something else entirely, and doesn't involve the Canadian government.

I highly doubt the Canadian government told TK you can't increase YYZ/YUL but can fly to YVR.

I'm sure Turkish Airlines would do very well on IST-YVR if it is launched. Since TK has a wide international network from Istanbul, lots of demand overall will be simulated to many connecting destinations.

I don't think Calgary or Edmonton will be served anytime soon. Out of the two, Calgary has a much higher chance of being launched. KLM is the only airline serving Edmonton outside of North America, and no others seem interested in serving the market. As long as Canada restricts TK's access to YUL and YYZ (and with limited frequencies to YVR) I don't see Calgary happening anytime soon. Emirates also wants to fly to Calgary and Vancouver but they've also been denied access, so Turkish Airlines isn't going to be given as many landing rights as they want.

I'm just wondering why TK would be restricted as a *A carrier. AC could gain pax from IST-YVR to western canada destinations along with transborder SEA, PDX, & SDF. LAS and PHX could also be transborder destinations but they have better options through UA flights at LAX and SFO to connect on TK. Just look at how well EK is doing at SEA, they are bringing pax to YVR, YYC, YEG, etc. through AS which they gain too.

Thank you for providing this info. TK launched YUL with a 3 weekly frequency few years ago and that is the bare minimum they will accept to launch any new long haul service. They wont launch YVR with a 2 weekly frequency as it has to be 3 to be relatively viable and competitive. Its an ideal B789 route for them to use the plane for. From a seat factor point of view, they wont have any issues, but yields will be quite challenging especially outside of peak summer period.

As also mentioned by some previous poster, I have a hard time to believe that TK (or morel likely Turkey) would be offered two YVR-specific frequencies. It is more likely that Turkey was granted an expansion from the current 9 to 11 weekly roundtrips to Canada and TK may well opt to make YYZ a daily service and reinforce YUL to 4 weekly. If YVR is launched, it will be at least thrice weekly and would therefore come at the expense of one weekly YYZ roundtrip.

Most likely this will be TK's Canadian setup

3X weekly YUL
3X weekly YVR
5X weekly YYZ

This makes frequencies equal and covers all major areas of Canada. EK and EY flies 5X weekly to YYZ so I don't see why TK wouldn't give up one weekly YYZ flight for 3X weekly YVR. There is a demand for it, those TK pax are driving down to SEA and catching the EK flight instead of transiting at YYZ or YUL so there is a huge leakage atm in cross border. Currently there are no one stop options for destinations in countries like Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, or even Sri Lanka unless you go through China with too long of a transit.

Really? People are driving to Seattle just for the EK flight? Where’d you hear that?

And what do you mean there are no one stop options? PIA flies directly from Toronto to Karachi, Islamabad, and Lahore?

Does AC or WS codeshare with PIA? No. You have to buy two seperate flight tickets and that can be extremely risky considering there could be delays due to weather, aircraft not good for service, etc. I mean some drive down to SEA, some fly AS to SEA from YVR and then take the EK flight, some even bus down to SEA to catch the EK flight. Many options right here, the pax is there but YVR is losing that pax to SEA thanks to all these restrictions put in place.

EK also has a codeshare bus services between SEA and YVR. There is definitely demand.

How does TK schedule their A321neo? Any special way or do they schedule it as a direct replacement for the older A321s?

What are the delivery dates for LLB and LLC?


At the moment no dates have been published however I would say LLB would be within the first few days of July and LLC would be mid July

A bit of both. The A321neos spend most of their time on some of the longest A321 routes such as Lisbon, Manchester, Abu Dhabi, Dushanbe and Dublin. However, they also spend a lot of time on other routes, especially recently.

Thank you, I see they have become a regular in BEG and the plane mostly comes from the Middle East before continuing to here. Would be interesting to find out how much they are actually saving on fuel.

As also mentioned by some previous poster, I have a hard time to believe that TK (or morel likely Turkey) would be offered two YVR-specific frequencies. It is more likely that Turkey was granted an expansion from the current 9 to 11 weekly roundtrips to Canada and TK may well opt to make YYZ a daily service and reinforce YUL to 4 weekly. If YVR is launched, it will be at least thrice weekly and would therefore come at the expense of one weekly YYZ roundtrip.


:checkmark:

If TK was offered 2x weekly frequencies, it is non sense to think they wont at least try to make YYZ daily. If YVR was that important to TK, they would have launched it ahead of YUL back in 2014. They didn't.

Icelandair flies to YEG, and last time I checked, Iceland was part of Europe, not North America.

Currently there are no one stop options for destinations in countries like Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, or even Sri Lanka unless you go through China with too long of a transit.


Incorrect. BA flies to Parkistan (Islamabad) and YVR.

Also, China is closer to the great circle route from YVR to places like Sri Lanka or Pakistan compared to any hub in Europe (including IST). So overall distance wise, it makes sense to transit in China when flying from YVR to the countries you mention.

Wow, especially ESB figures are worrying... what happened?


I think it could have something to do with the High Speed Train from finally reaching Istanbul (Bostanci, Sogutlucesme, Bakirkoy) instead of terminating at Pendik. Since the fares on the train are fixed, that's got to take a fair amount of traffic away from the airlines, especially as the new airport is far away. There's probably a similar effect on flights to Konya.

I took the train to Ankara and from a time point of view, it ended up being a lot more efficient. So I get that.
Also, at the Tourism Conference, some Turkish colleagues mentioned that ESB really needs rail connections to be more competitive. Why isn't the municipality getting on that?

I do not want to start a political debate here, but I think selection of location of ESB is even worse than new IST and it is not over natural roads of Ankara which is very difficult to reach from city center. Therefore a railway or subway investment will be very expensive and inefficient. I sometimes wonder if it is a concidence that ESB was built by DP and new IST is built by AKP!
