Quite a bumper day today stretching all the way back to 1933 when Turkish Airlines was formed.
In 1965 a legend was born in the form of the DHC6 Twin Otter.
More about the Twin Otters and other maiden flights can be found in my book 'Flying Firsts'
A big jump in time now to find a rather short lived project in Colombia as SAM, ACES and Avianca merged to form the Alianza Summa. However the venture folded a year later.
Another short lived airline although this one lasted a few more years. 2015 saw the commencement of operations of NokScoot. As the name suggests it was a joint venture between Singaporean Scoot and Thailands Nok Air. The airline folded in 2020.
See more about Asias lost airlines in my nw book 'Lost Airline Colours of Asia.'
We finish on a negative as in 2020 TAME ceased operations.
