Turkish Airlines has given a new look to the AnadoluJet division, now a subsidiary renamed AJet Air Transportation. The presentation of the new carrier took place on November 24 at the Turkish Technic facility at Sabiha Gokcen Airport.
AJet will debut in March 2024 operating its network from Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen and Ankara Esenboğa airports.
“The efforts and dedication we have put in for a long time have paid off, and we will introduce AJet to the skies with the summer schedule at the end of March 2024. We fully believe that AJet, with its new name, will become an important part of the cost-effective aviation industry on global scale,” said Prof. Dr. Ahmet Bolat, Turkish Airlines Chairman of the Board.
AnadoluJet was founded in 2008 to offer more affordable flights on a Europe-centric network. The airline grew rapidly and today has a fleet of 88 aircraft.
However, the route network operates under the Turkish Airlines code, something that should change as its parent company intends to obtain its own Air Operator Certificate (AOC) for AJet.
The company’s fleet is made up of first and second generation Airbus A320 and A321 aircraft, in addition to 54 Boeing 737s, including nine MAX8s.
