Turkish Airlines to cut winter capacity as demand weakens

Posted 8 November 2016 · Add Comment

Turkish Airlines will return several aircraft to their lessors as the carrier's capacity demand continues to weaken given the onset of the winter season, reports ch-aviation.

According to Turkish aviation portal AirportHaber, among the aircraft to be returned include seven A330-200s belonging to AerCap.

Turkey's leisure market has suffered as a result of the conflict in neighboring Syria as well as the political fallout of a failed military coup in July this year.
