19-Apr-2013 10:02 AM

Turkish Airlines chairman Hamdi Topcu said the airline would be interested in purchasing A380 and A350 aircraft if Airbus comes up with “good opportunities”, as reported by Les Echos. Mr Topcu said, “We've ordered what the company needs until 2020. For beyond that, we are going to finalise all our purchase plans towards the end of the year. But we are still interested in the A380 and the A350. And if Airbus offers us good opportunities, we will take them, making decisions in a few days. It depends on Airbus.” Mr Topcu’s comments followed the airline’s signing of an order for 117 narrow-body Airbus aircraft.
