Turkish Cargo achieves highest growth rate among Top 25 cargo carriers
Turkish Cargo achieved the highest growth rate among the best 25 air cargo carriers with 16.6 percent growth rate, according to the International Air Transport Association’s (IATA) Freight Tonne Kilometers (FTK) February.
Previously ranked 8th in 2019, Turkish Cargo rose to 5th place and increased its global FTK market share to 4.4 percent, while the global air cargo industry shrank by 2.6 percent, according to FTK data, which is the measure of a flight freight carrying capacity calculated by multiplying the number of tonne of freight on an aircraft by the distance travelled in kilometers.
On the successful growth of the Turkish Cargo, Turkish Airlines chairman of the board and the Executive Committee, M. İlker Aycı stated, “Just like our nation, we are a company that cannot abide losing or giving up. During these difficult days where the only thing we can do is to carry cargo, we are doing our duty to the best of our abilities while doing valuable work for humanitarian and commercial ends. The success of Turkish Cargo shows our commitment to carry our country to a central position in the world for the air cargo sector. Our geopolitical location and available means will help our country to become a more significant player in the air cargo sector following the Covid-19 pandemic. Therefore, we will be marching with surer footing towards our goal of making Turkish Cargo one of the top five air cargo brands in the world by 2023.”
Turkish Cargo continues to carry much-needed medicines and medical equipment from different continents first to Turkey and afterwards from Turkey to Chicago, Taipei, Atlanta, Sao Paulo, Seoul, New York and Kiev, and to all over the world. The carrier carried 4,000 tonnes of medicines and 500 tonnes of medical equipment during April.
