Turkish Airlines Endeavors to Become No. 1 in Europe by 2015 – Highly Motivated to Serve Daily from Narita

Turkish Airlines ISTANBUL – Temel Kotil, CEO, Turkish Airlines told the news media, invited from Japan, on April 6 (local time) that the airline aims to become the largest carrier in Europe by 2015. In efforts to reach the goal, the airline intends to address the strategy to capture transit traffic via Istanbul with three pillars in its core business, namely, “quality,” “price” and “branding.” Currently, the number of transit passengers carried by Turkish Airlines accounts for 34 percent of the airline’s total passenger production. It strives to increase its transit traffic to 50 percent in 2012 and up to 80 percent in 2015.

The price, in particular, among the three pillars, Turkish Airlines said, is competitive as its cost structure is more advantageous than its rival airlines, thanks to the geographical advantage enjoyed by Istanbul, the airline’s hub airport. When compared to the routes including Europe, Russia, North Africa, Middle East and elsewhere served out of its rival airlines’ hub airports, Turkish Airlines is able to reduce its operational cost per passenger carried over a distance of one kilometer by 50 percent from the view point of flight time and cost-effectiveness ratio.

Also, active utilization of short-haul aircraft including Boeing B737 helps to reduce operational costs and, as a result, Turkish Airlines is able to provide its high quality customer service with a competitive price, said Kotil. According to its fleet plan, the airline will take delivery of 105 new aircraft by 2023 in addition to 130 aircraft currently in operation. As the younger aircraft fleet will improve fuel-efficiency, the airline expects to further reduce its operational costs.
