Brief History

Turkish Airlines was established on 20 May 1933 and was first named State Airlines Administration. It was monitored by the Ministry of National Defence. In 1938, it became part of the Ministry of Transportation after the nascent establishment took firm roots. At first the airline only catered to domestic destination but then later, in 1947, made its first international voyage from Ankara to Athens via Istanbul. Soon Nicosia, Beirut and Cairo were added to the list of destinations served by Turkish Airline; however domestic needs were the carrier’s primary market until the 1960s. Earlier on Turkish Airlines had a fleet that was predominantly a dozen Donald McDouglas airplanes.

A need to reorganize the airline was realized and the Airline was renamed as Türk Hava Yollari in 1956. The airline was provided fresh capital and new aircrafts were purchased to cater for the growing demand. In 1971, the Turkish airlines bought its first three Boeings 707, however the Fokkers and McDouglas were still kept in great use.

After a period of poor reviews the airline rebranded and rejuvenated itself, with the help of a new Turkish government in 1983, and pledged there and then to maintain and level of good service and a young fleet to better its services. In that light, the airline also built a new technical center for light and heavy maintenance for its many aircrafts and the technical staff volume was enlarged giving particular influence on their trainings. Soon the airline’s fleet grew to 30 aircraft and it was catering to the travel needs of three million passengers annually to 16 domestic and three dozen international destinations.
From there on in the airline began expanding its network, aided with its brand new Airbus A310, to Singapore in 1986, and to New York in 1988 via Brussels. With the business booming after the gulf war Turkish Airlines launched a nonstop flight to New York City in July 1994, which became a very lucrative route for the airline and the company posted profitable return in the coming year of $ 6 million. By now Turkish Airlines got rid of most of the aging McDouglas aircrafts for the newer modern Airbus and Boeings it had purchased through the years.

Turkey deregulated its inflated market and economy in 1996 and the Turkish Airlines met with competition on its home ground for the first time. Nonetheless, the airline turned around its fortunes by providing better routes and services for destination of Western Europe and by going into an alliance with Japan Airlines in the late 1990s to add Osaka and Tokyo to its growing list of international destinations. This trend of making alliances and agreements with other airlines continued and Turkish Airline made agreements with Asiana Airlines, American Airlines, Malaysia Airlines, LOT Polish Airlines, Czech Airlines and Cathay Pacific in 2000.
