Back in , we took to the skies as State Airlines Administration. Leading the way, Turkey’s first aviator and chief executive, Fesan Evrensev, set out with a mere 30 employees and 5 aircraft.
In , our fleet increased to 33 aircraft and we began to fly to new destinations: Nicosia, Beirut and Cairo.
In 1955, taking the name of Turkish Airlines, we signed a document listing our extraordinary achievements. Furthermore, our name gained its ranks alongside the members of IATA, International Air Transport Association.
