September 12. Turkish Airlines is the world’s largest carrier by destinations served, flying to a stunning 325 airports globally before the pandemic. Fly to so many cities requires a fleet to match, and Turkish flies a diverse set of over 300 aircraft.
Turkish Airlines is a loyal customer to both Airbus and Boeing, flying hundreds of aircraft from each manufacturer. Flying to so many destinations means range and capacity are critical to the fleet, and Turkish has invested heavily in keeping its fleet young and agile. The 300+ fleet only has an average age of 7 years.
Turkish Airlines stands out in its fleet diversity. While rival Qatar Airways also flies a relatively diverse operation, Turkish has not shied away from ordering different variants to make a business case to fly to more destinations.
