Onur Air (Turkish: Onur Air Taşımacılık AŞ) is an airline based in Florya, Bakırköy district, Istanbul, Turkey.[1] It operates scheduled domestic services and charter flights to a large number of destinations throughout Europe from its main base at Atatürk International Airport.[2] The airline is owned in equal parts by Cankut Bagana (its previous CEO), Hayri İçli (the CEO) and Ünsal Tülbentçi.

[3] Onur Air was established on 14 April 1992. It started operations using a wet-leased Airbus A320 on 14 May 1992 with a flight to Ercan in Cyprus. Within 11 months three more aircraft were added to the fleet. By June 1995 Onur Air was operating a fleet of seven aircraft. By the end of 1995 it was operating nine aircraft. In 1996 Ten Tour acquired the airline. Due to recession, Onur Air had to reduce the number of the planes in its fleet to 13 in 1998 and then to nine in 1999. But once again the fleet grew rapidly reaching the present number of 31..

Egyptian Subsidiary

In June 2010 Onur Air board member Mehmet Pekpak announced plans to start a new airline in Egypt from December 2010. He explained the move is in part intended to address the drop in charter traffic to Turkey during the winter months by transferring capacity to Egypt. Onur Air plans to transfer at least two aircraft from Turkey to the Egyptian service. The service is still subject to approval by the Egyptian authorities.



As of July 2011, the Onur Air fleet consists of the following aircraft with an average age of 14.5 years:[4][5]

Incidents and accidents

  • On June 17, 2003, Onur Air Flight 2263, an MD-88 (registration TC-ONP) overshot the runway at Groningen Airport Eelde following an aborted take-off. There were no injuries, but the airline was accused of security breaches.[6]
  • On May 12, 2005, Onur Air was denied access to Dutch airspace for a month. Several incidents were the cause of the suspension of the airline. Negotiations took place between the Dutch authorities and Onur Air and on May 24, 2005 Onur Air had permission to fly from and to the Netherlands again.[7]
  • On September 7, 2007, an Airbus A321 aircraft lost cabin pressure on a charter flight from Dalaman Airport to Birmingham Airport, resulting in an emergency landing at Atatürk International Airport. Passenger reports included a smoking engine and broken down oxygen masks.[10]
  • On August 20, 2011 an Onur pilot forgot to contact Munich Air Traffic Control and engaged the quick reaction air defence of both Germany and Austria to send four Eurofighter Typhoon to intercept the company's A321.[11]
