Turkish Airlines talks to Airbus about ordering 355 new jets

Turkish Airlines (THYAO.IS) reportedly engaged in discussions with Airbus (AIR.PA) regarding a potential order of 355 new aircraft. The talks took place in Istanbul, and Turkish Airlines officials explored the possibility of purchasing 75 wide-body A350-900 and 15 wide-body A350-1000 aircraft, along with 250 narrow-body A321neo aircraft, five A350F cargo aircraft, and an additional 10 A350-900s that have already been agreed upon. If an agreement is reached, this order would be the largest in the history of the airline.

In May, Turkish Airlines chairman Ahmet Bolat announced plans to order a total of 600 new aircraft in June, with delivery expected within 10 years. The final order would depend on a government decision, which was anticipated within two months at the time. Part of the order would be optional.

Furthermore, Turkish Airlines officials held discussions with Rolls Royce (RR.L) regarding engine maintenance services and spare engines for the wide-body A350 aircraft.
