Turkish Airlines resumes MAX-flights, but cancels 50 on order

On 15 April, Turkish Airlines became another airline to resume commercial flying with the MAX. TC-LCA (60032) flew from Istanbul to Ankara and back and later in the day also made a trip to Izmir from Istanbul and back.

Originally, Turkish Airlines ordered 75 B737MAXs, including -8s and -9s. So far, the airline has taken delivery of eleven -8s and one -9. However, in March the airline decided to cancel ten MAXs on order and change firm orders for 40 into options, leaving the airline with a total of 25 MAXs ordered.
