Turkish Airlines is anticipating delivery of its first Airbus A350 in the near future.
As the event comes closer, the first aircraft (to become TC-LGA) has been spotted leaving the paint factory at Toulouse, France.
According to our A350 Routes Page, Turkish will initially fly its Airbus A350s from Istanbul to Buenos Aires, Dubai, London Heathrow, Los Angeles, Manila and Sao Paulo Guarulhos from June this year.
It’s likely the airline will also operate the type on some shorter sectors initially to aid in crew familiarity and training.
Turkish Airlines has 30 A350-900s on order.
