Bilal Ekşi, head of Turkey’s civil aviation authority, will replace outgoing CEO Temel Kotil who has run the airline for the past decade.
Turkish Airline stated that Ekşi, who will be presented for the managing board’s approval in its next meeting, was also appointed as deputy board chairman.
Kotil, who led Turkey’s flag carrier from April 2005, will be moving to Turkey’s military and civilian aircraft manufacturer Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI).
Ekşi served as Turkish Airline’s deputy director general before moving to the Directorate General of Civil Aviation in April 2011.
