Boğaziçi Hava Taşımacılığı (BHT, Bosphorus Air Transport), named after Boğaziçi (Turkish for Bosphorus), was a Turkish charter cargo/passenger airline that operated for two years starting in 1987.

History[edit]

BHT-Boğaziçi was 85% owned by Turkish Airlines and began services with a Douglas DC-10-10F and a Boeing 707-321C. Freight charters were flown to America, Europe, Asia and Africa. The aircraft were also used for passenger services serving Turkish migrant workers traveling home. BHT also had a leased Boeing 727-264 but by 1989 the airline was in severe financial problems and shut down.[1]
