Turkish Cargo, the air cargo brand of Turkish Airlines, ranked the 3rd among the leading air cargo carriers in the world, in the wake of a prospering performance in May.

The successful brand, which was ranked 5th on the same period of last year according to the monthly data published by the International Air Transport Association, became one of the top 3 air cargo carriers by overtaking the top brands in America, Europe and the Far East during May of 2023.

According to the FTK (Freight Tonne Kilometers), derived by multiplying the cargo tonnage, carried by air, with the kilometers covered, Turkish Cargo increased its cargo tonnage by 17% compared to previous month while raising its market share to 5.4% from 4.7% by increasing it 0.8 points as compared to April.

In respect of the achievement of Turkish Cargo, Turkish Airlines Chairman of the Board and the Executive Committee, Prof. Dr. Ahmet Bolat, said; We, as Turkish Cargo, are continuing to reinforce our leading position in the industry in line with our target to grow and improve continuously. We recognize these achievements as a commitment to our future targets and work harder to add further value to the air cargo industry.” 

As one of the fastest growing air cargo brands in the world, Turkish Cargo continues to raise the bar for success higher day by day and combines its wide range of services and operational capabilities with the unique geographical advantages of its hub in Türkiye.
