Turkish Airlines will change its name in the near future.

Turkey has changed its name (the country, not the bird)

Turkey has changed its name to Trkiye. The change has been recognized by the United Nations, despite the fact that it began in late 2021. Why is this name changing?

Trkiye presents and expresses the culture, civilization, and values of the Turkish nation in the best way according to Turkey's Prime Minister. The country has been referred to by this name domestically for a long time, but it has also been known as Turkey overseas.

The government wants to remove the country's name from the turkey, according to reports. The country is tired of competing with the bird in online searches. One reason is that the word "turkey" has different definitions, including a "silly person" or something that fails badly.

I don't know what to think of this. It is fair that countries can choose their own names. I don't think it's my business. I don't think many people went to the internet to plan a trip to Turkey, but ended up buying dinner instead. It seems like the country's old name makes it easy for people to remember and spell, which is a good thing.

Turkey will now be known as Türkiye

Turkish Airlines is also rebranding

The national airline of Trkiye is called Turkish Airlines. That is also being renamed as well. Turkish Airlines will be renamed Trkiye Hava Yollar, according to reports. Future planes of the airlines will not have the Turkish Airlines logo on them.

If you are going to change the country, it makes sense to change the airline as well, but it seems like a lot of money to avoid confusion with a bird.

Turkish Airlines is being rebranded

Bottom line

Turkish Airlines has been changed to Trkiye Hava Yollar. It will take some getting used to, and will probably just require me to copy and paste the carrier's name in posts. Most of the time, we will refer to the airline as THY.
