Turkish Airlines flights rise over 1,000 daily for first time since virus
Turkish Airlines has now reached over 1,000 flights a day for the first time since COVID-19 struck, thanks to its successful performance during the current normalization period.
The airline operated 1,065 flights this Friday, June 25, leaping 23.4% from June 4, when it announced a 15-month daily flight record, according to Turkish Airlines.
Recalling how hard the aviation sector was hit by the pandemic last year, with flights grinding to a halt, passenger demand started to bounce back thanks to vaccine distribution, easing travel restrictions, and the beginning of the summer season.
The airline's passenger load factor also rose, pushed by demand from passengers traveling to Turkey.
On June 25, Turkish Airlines flew to Turkey with a 75.3% load factor while flights from Turkey were at 68.2%.
Founded in 1933, Turkish Airlines has a fleet of 367 (passenger and cargo) aircraft flying to 323 worldwide destinations, including 273 international and 50 domestic.
