Region: Europe: Eastern/Central Europe


Bridging Asia and Europe, Turkey is in a prime position – both geographically and economically – to take advantage of its growing aviation sector to further fuel economic growth from tourism and related industries, including developing the country into a regional MRO hub. The General Directorate of Civil Aviation is responsible for oversight and regulation of Turkey’s civil aviation sector, while air navigation services are provided by the General Directorate of State Airports Authority, which also operates Turkey’s major airports.  

Turkish Airlines is the country’s national carrier with its main base at Istanbul Airport. Turkish operates scheduled services to Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas.
