Routes and service focus for Turkish Cargo

Turkish Cargo says it is focusing on increasing its route network and on providing a “qualified service and strong sales network”.

The carrier says it is its “working principle to meet the trade points in the world” according to its global mission and to create new trade routes.

Turkish says it is closely monitoring, supporting, and providing new alternatives to the economic downturns at different points.

“Our 2017 targets will continue in this direction, we continue to offer more destinations, qualified service and strong sales network, to our regular traffic and our customers. With our complete infrastructure and globally integrated system, we are more assertive than ever,” the airline explains.

This year, Turkish Cargo expects it will see growth in Asia/Far East, the Middle East, and Europe and it notes in the last two year, it sees global business growing stronger.

The carrier notes: “This increase in the economic performances of the countries will be reflected in both on sectoral level and in world trade scale positively. We also see great potential in South America.

“Although the commercial activity in the continent is intensive, we see progress signals in the overseas trade of these countries. From this point of view, 2017 will be a year of rising trend in terms of world trade.”

The bellyhold arm Turkish Airlines has launched a new three-weekly route to Voronezh in Russia, adding to services in its network it already runs to Moscow, St.Petersburg, Sochi, Rostov, Kazan, Ekaterinburg, Ufa, and Stavropol.

Last month it also added a four-times a week belly route to Kharkiv in the Ukraine. Turkish now operates flights to 298 destinations in 120 countries.
