RE: Turkish Aviation Thread Dec.2006

Thu Dec 28, 2006 7:19 pm

Looking at the TK website, today Dec28th, Bishkek flight TK1348 gets a 332, is this the first time?
And besides the usual Trabzon flight TK550 with A320 at 17:20, there is a A310 TK4546 flight at 17:45, what kind of a charter any ideas?
Thanks.

hello, the A310 is because the last few trabzon flights have been cancelled, therefore a large build up has built up, the A310 is shuttling to take this people there

and also the umre flights are picking up so they are shuttling the A310 in domestic routes to pic up people

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

I guess it must be very busy at IST or most of the airports in the country. Good thing the weather is cooperating. Here some of today's fun equipment routes:
-A310s to Moscow, Adana, Samsun
-A332s to DUS, JFK
-A343 to Paris

This weekend is quite a busy period for Turkish aviation. Not only is it the traditional busy New Years travel period with many Turks headed abroad and around the country, but this year also marks the end of the Hajj and beginning of Eid holiday (Kurban bayram) which fall during the same few days.

THY alone over a 5 day period will operate about 80 extra sections to cater to the extremely strong demand, and hence why we see lots of equipment upgrades also.

I wonder if TK would increase frequencies some of the Central Asia markets: TSE, ALA, FRU, DYU as well as in European part: RIX, KBP, possibly add LWO and KRK to its destination list.

according to an article on Turkish aviation website airporthaber.com TK will fly direct to South America soon. Turkish foreign minister Abdullah Gül said that "Latin America and Africa is been unattended in the past and that TK will start non-stop service soon".

What does Abdullah Gul have to do with TK?

In TK's January edition of Skylife the chairman said:

Quote:
We have also started looking into the purchase of some of the new generation of Wide Bodied Long Range planes and will soon be making decisions as to what Turkish Airlines is going to acquire by 2015.

Does this mean they will get an A345 or a 777LR? Also, does this have to do with the flights to south america? Where else would they plan to use new long range aircraft?

Why not a B787 or A350? If they are looking for the future's airplane they should look something futuristic imo.

Has any of the TK-members knowledge if Nuremberg (NUE) will see any more TK flights beyond the daily IST service?
Ankara or Izmir could most likely be justfied for two weekly services.
The Turkish population in my former home-town is quite big and many immigrants are not neccessarily from IST.
About TK expanding interconti -that's a logic move but should be seconded with the introduction of some improved Y-and C-class products.Specially the TK Y class could be made a little bit more attractive by improving the presentation and quality of food offered.The current Y class on Asian destinations will be heavily competed with Asian-carriers' products which are perceived by many as still somewhat superior.
I have no doubt TK mamagement will put an eye on this issue..
Are there any plans to serve Vietnam ?
The country attracts an ever increasing amount of visitors (business and tourists ) and fares from France to Ho Chi Min or Hanoi are relatively high even in Y class.Vietnam airlines still don't have their web-site operational-so it's an indication there is room for penetrating a new market.

Would that be just the usual charter flights or a sheduled service into IST S.Gökçen like the new service to Stuttgart ??
Can't find any summer shedules yet on their web-site.

I suppose that TK code-shares with XQ between NUE-ADB. If I am not mistaken, XQ serves NUE 4xweekly.

they will operate from SAW like they already do to STR. Pegasus doesn't have any flights to IST expect the code-share flight of IzAir between ADB-IST, but this flight is operated by IzAir on behalf of Pegasus.
