Turkish Airlines to buy two A330Fs

TURKISH Airlines has signed a Memorandum of Understanding to buy two A330-200 freighters.“By choosing the A330-family aircraft that offer best-in-class comfort for passengers and extended cargo capacity for customers we are aiming to ensure the success of our business model,” said Turkish Airlines chairman, Candan Karlitekin.Airbus’ chief operating officer, John Leahy, said: “The efficient A330-200F is very well adapted to today’s market dynamics of rising fuel prices and increased pressure on yields.“The A330-200F is the right aircraft at the right time. We are at the eve of a market recovery and now is the time for airlines to prepare for future freight growth.”Meanwhile, other carriers continue to ground their freighters at an unprecedented rate to cut capacity, some even suggesting the grounding may become permanent.
