© Turkish Airlines Virtual 2022
Turkish Virtual was founded in July 2021. Our story began at around 3 AM one morning when we suddenly thought of creating the VA. We created the VA in record pace and built together to certify the VA. Today, after staff changes, multiple iterations, and a commitment to high quality and standards, we are proud to finally open the gateway to the world to all Infinite Flight pilots in the new year of 2022.
Our co-founders, @Nativetoalaska, @Ran, @Cpt_Bosnia, and the staff team have collaborated together to outline a specific focus on creating the best experiences for pilots. We achieve this via our enormous routes network, numerous fleet, and emphasis on community. We are one of the few VAs based in a country that exists in two continents [Flag carrier of Turkey]. We fly to over 315 destinations in 126 countries around the world, enabling our pilots to fly farther and higher than ever before.
A Message From Our Chief Executive Officer
“Merhaba! I’m Ran, the current CEO of Infinite Flight’s Turkish Airlines Virtual. It’s been an extended time since we were certified in August 2021. However, after methodical planning, attention to details, and implementation, we are proud to finally present a much more refined Turkish Virtual than the one before. On behalf of the entire staff team, I welcome you all to not just a virtual airline, but a welcoming community of aviators that love Turkish Airlines. We can’t wait to Widen Your World!"

At Turkish Virtual, we operate an extensive fleet of the Airbus aircraft family. Each plane in the family caters to different sets of demand across our regional based route network, with our A321 primarily handling regional, short-haul, and medium-haul flights while our A333 & A359 flights fly farther on our medium and long-haul routes, such as Europe, Asia, and the Americas.
Our Boeing fleet consists of the workhorse B737-900, distinguished B777-300ER, and the popular B787-9. All aircraft offer the best-quality comfort levels available and fly to destinations everywhere, whether it’s Izmir and Ankara or San Francisco and Taipei. The experiences onboard these famed aircraft provide the best representation of Turkish hospitality anywhere one goes.
We fly masses of passengers to cities covering the entire globe, but we also hold a strong cargo operations division. The Turkish Cargo fleet is a vital part to the operations of the airline as a whole. Spearheaded with our B777-200Fs & A330-200Fs, our freighter aircraft flies important resources and general goods to reach their end destinations on-time.
