Borajet has moved into its new hangar at Ataturk International and restructured with new and experienced staff as it brings a Global Express XRS into service. Kadir Peker, gm, says: "The XRS addresses the shortage of extended long range aircraft in Turkey and neighbouring countries. Borajet is making extensive investment in its fleet and the XRS brings a new dimension to our established fleet of four ATR 72-500s."
Peker says a prime aim is to perform low-cost regional operations and to reach all income groups. "We will provide a well-planned flight network which covers routes not previously serviced while offering reasonable and affordable fares," he pledges.
Borajet, he says, will raise its profile as a feeder airline for large operators. "The XRS will have a long distance focus."
Peker continues: "Separately, we will reinforce our appeal as a regional airline but we also aim to help eliminate the difficulties posed by the extremely long road trips due to the peculiar geographical conditions of our country and its neighbours."
"This will involve adding to the fleet and interconnecting all cities and towns that are suitable for air transport. We have recruited top level management and staff to ensure adherence to the highest safety standards."
