The order is largest by value that the Istanbul-based air carrier has ever signed.
The airline already operates a dozen of the Everett-built planes. The first of those was delivered by Boeing in October 2010. The new planes will allow the Turkish carrier to serve new destinations worldwide.
The 777-300ER seats a maximum of 386 passengers in a three-class configuration. The plane has an unrefueled range of 9,100 miles.
