									PRESS RELEASE

                                                              New Delhi, December 19th, 2013

  Turkish Airlines has completed a successful Decade of flying in India

                   Bullish on Indian Aviation for expansion in 2014-15


Turkish Airlines, one of the fastest growing international airlines proudly announces its
completion of 10 successful years of its operations in India, truly standing for its motto-
“Widen Your World”. The airline is operating in India since 2003 and has achieved
major milestones since then in the country. Flying out of the two most important cities
of the country, New Delhi and Mumbai, Turkish Airlines has become one of the most
popular airlines serving the Indian traveller.

Turkish Airlines is bullish on taking on Indian Aviation in 2014-15 by looking at the
options of starting operations from new routes and by increasing number of flights.
Currently the airline operates a daily flight to Istanbul connecting Europe, USA and
Australia from New Delhi and Mumbai.

One of the fastest growing airlines, it has received several “Passenger Choice Awards”
from Airline Passenger Experience Association (APEX). In 2013, Turkish Airlines, for
the third consecutive year, was named “Best Airline in Europe” by Skytrax. A winner of
the “World’s Best Economy Class On-Board Catering” award, Turkish Airlines was also
the recipient of the Skytrax “Best Business Class Catering” award in 2013.

Commenting on the milestone, Mr. Adnan Aykac, General Manager for North & East
India Turkish Airlines said, “As Turkish Airlines has completed 10 years in India, it is a
great moment of joy and pride for all of us. I would like to thanks all our partners and well-
wishers in making this a reality. As India is likely to become the 3rd largest aviation market by
2020, it is a great time for an international airline like Turkish Airlines to invest in the country.
India holds tremendous growth opportunities for business and leisure travel for Turkish Airlines
and we hope our relationship with the country grows as we plan to spread our network across in
the coming years”
