Turkish Airlines is slated to order up to 350 jets from Airbus.

Turkish Airlines is already one of the biggest airlines globally in terms of destinations and currently operates 435 aircraft. The airline has 100 more aircraft on order but is now slated to order big time. Turkish has been talking about this order for the past few months but recently went quiet until Airbus CEO Guillaume Faury, was seen in Turkey on his way to the Dubai Airshow.

Hava Socyal Medya, a Turkish aviation website, reports that a deal is already in place, and the announcement might be made at the Dubai Airshow 2023. The order is expected to consist of:

  • 250 Airbus A321neo
  • 75 Airbus A350-900
  • 15 A350-1000
  • 5 A350F freighters

Airbus is mainly sold out on its single-aisle A320 aircraft through the decade’s end. Now, demand for widebody aircraft is also strong, with Airbus deciding to raise output on its A350 model to 10 a month in 2026. If the numbers here line up fully, Turkish will become the largest operator of the A350 aircraft.


Airbus is slated for a massive win at the Dubai Airshow, with Turkish Airlines expected to announce up to 350 aircraft orders. This could make Turkish Airlines the largest operator of the A350 aircraft in the future.

What do you think of this big order from Turkish Airlines coming up at the Dubai Airshow?
