Turkish interiors specialist signs deal with Canadian carrier

TCI Cabin Interior has signed a deal with Lynx Air, Canada’s newest ultra-affordable airline, to design and manufacture its cabin interior products.

The airline, headquartered in Calgary, Alberta, will use galleys and monuments produced by TCI in its fleet of 40 Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft.

Istanbul-based TCI said being chosen by Lynx “is an indicator of the success of TCI’s design philosophy applied in its products [which offer] the best solutions in weight, quality, price and performance.”

TCI, founded in 2010, is a joint venture of TA, Turkish Airlines and Turkish Technic. In line with Turkey’s aviation goals and 2023 vision, it has been gaining ground in engineering, quality and certification since its foundation, completing its first Boeing and Airbus programme deliveries in 2014. By the end of 2015, it was listed in Boeing’s Global Offerable list.

Along with the projects conducted with Boeing, Airbus, and Stelia, TCI became the global supplier of airlines and leasing companies including Turkish Airlines, SunExpress, Jet Airways, SpiceJet, Azerbaijan Airlines, Donghai Airlines and Anadolu Jet.

TCI operates in the MRO Center at Sabiha Gökçen International Airport with more than 160 employees. The company has been increasing its expertise in the design, testing, certification and manufacturing of aircraft cabin interior products such as galleys, monuments, lavatories, overhead bins and windscreens.

It aims to increase its product range in the near future with industrial products such as cargo containers, cargo pallets and trolleys, while continuing to export significantly with its domestic subcontractors in the aviation industry.


Lynx Air is Canada’s new ultra-affordable airline, on a mission to make air travel accessible to all, with low fares, a fleet of brand-new Boeing aircraft and great customer service. Privately owned, it says its financial backing and industry expertise will enable it to “transform the Canadian aviation landscape”.
