Covid-19: Turkish Cargo to push all its freighters at full capacity to meet global trade demands
Turkish Cargo is increasing the frequencies of its flights, operated by freighters, for the purpose of avoiding any delays being caused due to the coronavirus pandemic (Covid-19).
Despite the fact that the cargo transportation capacity on board the passenger aircraft is significantly narrowed down due to the travel restrictions across the globe and the decrease in customer demand, the airline, operating by making use of the 6th largest freighter fleet with the largest cargo capacity in the world, is planning to utilise all of its freighters in the fleet at full capacity for the purpose of meeting all export requirements in Turkey as well as for the critically important foreign trade.
Albeit the unusual change of demand, continuing to serve as the solution partner for the Turkish manufacturers and exporters by also complying with the restrictions imposed by the national authorities and the precautionary practices implemented by the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Turkey, Turkish Cargo will start to serve for cargo transportation purposes by making use of the aircraft available in its fleet, in addition to its current cargo freighter capacity, which was increased to 25 from 13 during the last 4 years.
Furthermore, acting by being aware of the fact that continuation of the air cargo flow will be lifesaving during this period, Turkish Cargo is supporting all the efforts made by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) for fighting against the corona virus, globally. While continuing its operations with its specialised crew and team members and operational units, Turkish Cargo is serving 24/7 with its booking system.
