Turkish Airlines' target 

Ceo of Turkish Airlines Temel Kotil aims to carry 38 million people next year. He has also said they will aim to reach to the expectation of 7.8 billion for 2012 with 17 percent growth in passenger number.

The Ceo explained that the competition is getting harder for those airlines that " go home  and sleep after the workday is done ". He added that dynamic airlines like THY  attracted extra passengers because they always strive to do more.
