Turkish Airlines Attempts to Increase Flights to India

Turkish Airlines, based in Istanbul, is looking to operate more flights to India.  They have approached the Indian aviation ministry to get approval for increasing the number of flights they can operate each week.  Under their current bilateral limits they are allowed no more than 14 passenger flights and 14 cargo flights to India per week.  They are operating this number of passenger flights, with seven flying out of Mumbai and seven flying out of Delhi, and now they want to extend their bilateral limits.

Adnan Aykac, general manager (northern and eastern India), Turkish Airlines, said that through their government they are currently trying to negotiate with the Indian aviation ministry for an increase in the limit.  He also stated that their current load factor for passenger flights is about 95% and there has been a 20% growth in the traffic from India.  The only down side to increasing flights out of the Indian airports is the recent hike in airport fees.
