2014 January

Message of CEO

Welcome Aboard

Date: Wednesday, 01 January 2014

Dear Guests,
As the aviation sector closes the book on another difficult year, here at Turkish Airlines we are experiencing the pleasure of having steered our way through yet another successful period. We and the entire Turkish Airlines family owe a debt of gratitude to you, our valued passengers, for lending us your strong support during that process.  
Turkish Airlines sustained its growth trend of the last decade without interruption in 2013, chalking up a total 20 percent growth for the year. Our volume of business, which was 1.2 billion liras in 2003, has risen to around 10 billion USD at the end of 2013. This performance, which we have steadily repeated over the past ten years, clinches our conviction that we can realize our targets as each passing year brings us one step closer every year to our 2023 vision.
