When the Turkish Airlines order is finalized, Boeing will post the agreement to the Boeing Orders & Deliveries website as a firm order.

Probably the fastest-growing airline in the world, Turkish Airlines is a large customer for both the Boeing 737 and the Airbus A320 families of single-aisle aircraft.

The airline already operates 92 Boeing 737-family aircraft of various models and along with existing orders still outstanding, the newly announced order means the Istanbul-based carrier has another 115 Boeing 737s on firm order and on option.

Turkish Airlines also already operates 77 Airbus A320-family jets. On March 15, Turkish Airlines placed an 82-aircraft firm order for 25 A321s, four A320neos and 53 Airbus A321neo jets. In addition, Turkish took options on another 35 A321neos.

As a result, together with existing orders outstanding, Turkish Airlines has 129 Airbus A320-family aircraft on firm order and on option.
