The civil aviation industry, and air transport activities, in particular, are regulated by both national and international regulations. The existence of this complementary structure reveals the need to evaluate international agreements and bilateral air transportation agreements together with national regulations. With the Turkish Civil Aviation Law number 2920, adopted on October 14, 1983, a new era has started in Turkish civil aviation from a legal perspective. The important innovations regulated by the Law No. 2920 are the opening of the civil aviation market to a private enterprise and the establishment of private airline companies in addition to allowing them to operate. However, it took almost 20 years for this regulation to be put into practice and reach significance in practice. In 2003, the rule that allowed Turkish private airline companies to operate on domestic flights started being used effectively in practice. There are currently many regulations and instructions for regulating the activities of air carriers, mainly Turkish Civil Aviation Law No. 2920 and the Commercial Air Transport Enterprises Regulation (SHY-6A). This study examines the relationship between air carriers and the administration within the scope of the regulation of their activities. First, the administrative organization for the regulation of civil aviation will be explained; afterward, the intervention of the administration in the sector will be examined in the context of both economic and safety-security issues.
