Turkish Airlines has revealed its new Boeing 787 Dreamliner interior. The Turkish carrier announced the new interior in a series of tweets posted over the past 24 hours.
At the start of the year, the airline announced its new business class seat after media speculation following a newspaper leak. Then, in April, the airline announced the first flight for the Boeing 787 Dreamliners it ordered in 2017.
According to fellow Simple Flying writer Nick, Turkish Airlines will break the aircraft in by using a domestic route. Later in the year there are then plans to fly a Mexican triangle with the aircraft.
So, by this point, you must all be thinking, “Tom, show us the interior!”. Well, I’m not one to disappoint, so let us take a look! Turkish airlines began proceedings with a teaser image of the rear business bulkhead, featuring the airline’s logo in a gleaming bronze colour.
Turning the camera 90 degrees to the right, the airline then showed off what a passenger would see standing in the port aisle. This showcased some enormous IFE screens which will be a real treat for passengers.
After this, Twitter users were treated to a shot of the economy cabin. The image taken from the front of the cabin shows off the economy 3-3-3 configuration, in contrast, to the business 1-2-1 layout.
If that wasn’t enough for you, the airline then shared a couple of interior videos via Twitter:

Boeing 787 launch
Turkish Airlines will launch their Boeing 787 aircraft from the 8th of July, in just 18 days time. Initially, the aircraft will be deployed twice daily on a local 1-hour 10-minute route, covering just over 300 miles. The route is between the cities of Istanbul and Antalya and will be operated by flights TK2410, TK2411, TK2438, and TK2439.
More aircraft on the way
Following the arrival of the Boeing 787, Turkish Airlines has even more aircraft to get excited about. From April 2020 onwards, the airline will begin services utilising new Airbus A350 aircraft on routes to London and Dubai. While the London service starts on the 13th of April, the Dubai service doesn’t start until the 14th of April. The Airbus A350 will have the same business class seat shown in the Boeing 787 interior.
