Turkish firm to make galleys for Indian air carrier
Turkish Cabin Interior Inc. (TCI) -- a joint venture of Turkish Airlines, Turkish Technic and Turkish Aerospace Industries -- has agreed a new deal with one of India's largest airlines to manufacture onboard galleys, it was announced on Wednesday.
Flag carrier Turkish Airlines said deliveries of the galleys to SpiceJet will start in August 2018 and will continue until 2024.
SpiceJet will strengthen its market position with the Turkish-made galleys, Turkish Airlines said, adding: "TCI is delighted with the current deal, which will consolidate its position in the South Asia market."
Commenting on the new deal, Cetin Tugtag, general manager of TCI, said the company's "smart design philosophy" provided lightweight-yet-durable systems.
"We believe that this significant deal, that we signed with SpiceJet, in order to deliver our privileged philosophy to their new B737 MAX fleet, will be highly beneficial for both sides," Tugtag added.
