The airline, which began operations in 1933 with five aircraft, now has a passenger and cargo fleet of 338 aircraft, and has maintained a steady growth, which has resulted in making it one of the top airlines in the world.

With its subsidiaries, Goodrich Turkish Technic Service Center, TEC, TSI Turkish Seat Industries and TCI Turkish Cabin Interior, and a workforce of almost 7,000, the maintenance and repair center has raised the bar in aviation maintenance.
