Turkish Airlines is a national flag carrier airline of Turkey. It is headquartered at the Turkish Airlines General Management Building on the grounds of Atatürk Airport in Yeşilköy, Bakırköy, Istanbul. As of July 2019, it operates scheduled services to 304 destinations in Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas, making it the largest carrier in the world by number of destinations.
The company’s logo has gone through several transformations since its founding in 1933. The initial logo, which was adopted in 1933, featured a crescent and star which symbolized the Turkish flag. This logo was used until the 1950s when it was replaced with a more modern logo featuring two stylized blue and red arrows pointing upwards, representing the airline’s ambition to reach great heights.
In the late 1960s, the logo was changed to feature a stylized red tulip, which was meant to represent the airline’s commitment to its home country, Turkey. This version of the logo remained unchanged for almost 20 years until the late 1980s when the airline underwent a major rebranding effort. This included a change to the logo, which now featured a red and blue globe with a stylized Turkish flag in the center. The globe was intended to represent the airline’s global reach and the flag was meant to show its national pride.
Today, the Turkish Airlines logo is highly recognizable and is a symbol of the airline’s commitment to progress and innovation.
