Turkish Air CEO to Add U.S. Frequencies, Targets Atlanta

Turkish Airlines plans to offer extra flights to Chicago, Washington and Los Angeles while adding a service to Atlanta as the fast-expanding carrier seeks to feed more U.S. traffic through its Istanbul hub.

While Turkish Air, as Turk Hava Yollari AS is known, already has a global network, it lacks the frequencies needed to lure business passengers on some major long-haul routes, Chief Executive Officer Temel Kotil said today in an interview.
