Hamdi Topcu said: "It is a great honour for Turkish Airlines to be associated with Manchester United as the team's official airline sponsor and I am confident the partnership will make an excellent contribution to our brand value. Like Manchester United we aim to be the very best in everything we do with first class quality of service in all aspects of our business. We are very excited about the commercial opportunities that the sponsorship will offer the airline working alongside one of the most famous football clubs in the world."
