Turkish mega order for A320 family
In the week in which Flight magazine published a special about the history of the Airbus A320, THY Turkish Airlines placed a mega order for 82 A320-family aircraft. That is to say: a mega order for Turkish, not for Airbus, which has received even bigger orders for A320s and rtelatives. The Turkish order consists of 25 A321s, 53 re-engined A321neos and four A320neos. The company already has 76 A320 family aircraft in its fleet (14 A319, 27 A320 and 35 A321).
