Revenue and tonnage growth for Turkish Cargo

Revenue and tonnage growth for Turkish Cargo

Turkish Cargo’s cargo revenue has grown 24.4 per cent and tonnage is up 26.1 per cent on a year-on-year (YOY) basis in the first half of 2017 to the end of June, as it continues to expand its services.

The carrier says it has also grown YOY by 46.8 per cent in the Chinese market during the six month period.

Turkish Cargo has launched seven new service points all at once within the last two months, including to Paris, Sao Paulo, Johannesburg, Antananarivo in Madagascar, and Kano in Nigeria.

This brought its cargo destinations to 72 by the end of August, which were 55 as of the beginning of 2016.

Turkish says it has generated a wide corridor extending to Africa from Asia and to the Latin America from the Europe, and utilised its two Boeing 747-400Fs.

The carrier says it was ranked among the top ten international air cargo carriers based on the data announced for June of 2017 by the WorldACD.

Turkish adds it has become the third air cargo company linking up Pakistan, Poland and the United Arab Emirates to the world, and the fifth linking up Austria, Bangladesh, Egypt and Finland to the world.
