Turkish Airlines 'a 4-star Company'

Turkish Airlines has been given a four-star quality rating after an assessment by auditing and consultancy company Skytrax.

Having previously received a three-star rating, the airline said that it "increased its efforts on quality" and developed its services with the customer in mind to achieve the higher score.

The carrier claimed that its new ranking places it among the most prestigious companies in world aviation.

Temel Kotil, chief executive of Turkish Airlines, said that the company has plans to advance further and is "continuously working" towards a five-star rating.

He added: "We're competing with genuine companies in the international arena. We're getting more and more share from the market everyday. In this competition, our greatest power will be our service quality."

Skytrax CEO Edward Plaisted congratulated Turkish Airlines on its new rating and said that the achievement was a result of "dynamic management leadership" combined with the work of frontline staff.
