In this study, it is aimed to make comparative efficiency analysis of narrow-body aircrafts Boeing B737-700 and Airbus A319 as well as of wide-body aircrafts Boeing B777-200 and Airbus A330-300 using financial and operational indicators. Based on the data used in the
analytical study, using the TOPSIS method, the results show that in regional flights where the narrow-body aircrafts operate, the B737-700 aircraft compared to A319; and where the widebody aircrafts are utilized in long-haul and intercontinental flights, the A330-300 aircraft
compared to the B777-200 aircraft was determined to have a cost advantage. According to the radar graphic method used in the study; the A319 narrow-body aircraft generally showed superior operational characteristics compared to the B737-700 narrow-body aircraft; and the B777-200 wide-body aircraft was determined to have superior operational characteristics compared to the A330-300 wide-body aircraft.
