Deal takes Turkish Airbus orders above 500

Turkish Airlines pushes gross orders with Airbus to 514

Turkish Airlines has pushed its gross orders with Airbus above 500 as it books 82 A320-family aircraft. The fast-growing airline unveiled plans in March to order up to 117 single-aisle Airbus twinjets, including the A320neo.
Airbus gross orders are now taken to exactly 514, with a net figure of 493. One more order concerns a single private A319.
Airbus delivered 202 aircraft during the first four months of 2013, including 159 A320-family jets and 39 A330s. That compares to 183 for the same period in 2012.
