Irem TaylanClose

Regional Director


Irem joined the AJW Group in 2023 as Regional Director of AJW Türkiye, the regional support hub based in Istanbul. Through her extensive business network, she aims to make AJW, Turkey’s aviation service provider of choice. By understanding the needs of her customers, she strives to ensure the Group provides the best possible service to meet and exceed customer expectations.


She studied English Language Interpretation and Translation at Istanbul Arel University, and in 2015 began working as an intern at an aviation company in Istanbul. Her goal was to develop and improve her English language skills, but having started work here at the tender age of 19, says she had no idea that her life would navigate toward being an aviator.


Irem’s career advanced in her first role in aviation, and she had the chance to join the Middle East region sales team. While visiting countries in the region, she soon realised her adventure had just begun and followed this position with other roles in the aviation industry. Gaining valuable technical knowledge by spending time in the warehouse at Onur Air, Irem went on to work in purchasing, operations management, and after-market component sales departments and grew her industry knowledge in these areas. She also enjoyed a role in a company that held one of the few global representation licenses for Bombardier, Gulfstream, and Textron, which supported the business jet aftermarket.


When taking time to relax, Irem enjoys spending time with her toy poodle Lola, lifting weights at the gym, participating in techno music events, and riding horses. Her hobbies bring her great joy and fill her with invigorating energy to tackle her role at AJW when back in the office.
