Turkish belly flights bringing fresh seafood to Kuwait

Turkish belly flights bringing fresh seafood to Kuwait

Fresh Aegean seafood is now being brought to the Gulf country of Kuwait by Turkish Cargo through a Turkish Airlines Boeing 737 belly connection every Saturday.

Turkish started operating the passenger route on 30 June from Milas-Bodrum Airport to Kuwait International Airport and says the service aims to deliver fresh fish on to the plates of diners on the same day.

The Aegean Region breeds three of the four of the fish exported at the seafood market, and the service boosts exports from the region.

Turkish announced the service in May, when it also revealed other new Middle East connections to the likes of Saudi Arabia, Iraq, and Jordan.
