Turkish Airlines says doubles market share in Hungary

Turkey's national air carrier, the Turkish Airlines (THY), has increased its market share in flights between Istanbul and Budapest from 1.88 percent to 4 percent, THY's country director Levend Arisoy said.

Arisoy said the THY carried 79 thousand passengers in 2009 over nearly 70 thousand passengers in 2008 despite a 20 percent drop in passenger capacity in the country due to a global economic recession.

Arisoy said the THY targeted to increase the number of its passengers on Istanbul-Budapest-Istanbul route to 85 thousand and its market share to 5 percent.

THY has reported a 10.3 percent increase in the number of its passengers in the first eleven months of this year to some 23 million in January-November period from 20.8 million passengers over the same period last year.

Turkey's national air carrier has recently announced that it had placed a firm order for 14 Airbus A321-200 and 6 Airbus A319-100 passenger planes as well as an optional order for the purchase of 10 Airbus A319/A321s.
