BBN Airlines Türkiye (B5, Antalya) took delivery of its first A321-200(P2F) on June 17, 2023, and said it would induct it into revenue service "shortly".

VP-CTN (msn 2005) was ferried after conversion at Singapore Seletar to Istanbul Atatürk, via Chennai and Dubai World Central. It will now undergo final pre-induction maintenance.

The Turkish ACMI/charter specialist, launched earlier this year, currently operates four passenger A321-200s placed, two each, with fellow Turkish charter specialists Freebird Airlines and Tailwind Airlines. The airline's plan was to launch with a focus on the passenger market and subsequently expand into the cargo sector. BBN Airlines (Türkiye) is affiliated with Bluebird Nordic - soon to be rebranded as BBN Airlines Nordic - itself a subsidiary of Avia Solutions Group. While Bluebird operates an all-Boeing fleet of freighters, the holding's fleet includes converted A321 freighters operated by SmartLynx Airlines and SmartLynx Airlines Malta.
