Offering service to 132 countries and being the fastest-growing air cargo brand around the world, Turkish Cargo has been carrying out the air cargo transportation operations of Turkish Airlines, the "rising star" of Turkey, since 1933.
According to the data announced for September 2021 IATA (International Air Transport Association), Turkish Cargo increased its market share to 5,4 percent and transported 1 out of every 20 air cargo, carried throughout the world, in the industry where the global air cargo market has shrunk by 28.5 percent. Turkish Cargo also received the “Best Cargo Airline – Europe” award during the Air Cargo News Awards 2020, based on criteria such as quality, innovation, efficiency, speed and reliability.
Operating with the fleet of Turkish Airlines, our flag-carrier main brand, including 373 aircraft (passenger aircraft and freighters), Turkish Cargo provides air cargo service to more than 340 destinations including 98 direct cargo destinations.
Acting with the aim of making Istanbul, the intersection points of the air cargo traffic, the logistics center of the world, the triumphant air cargo brand plans to operate direct flights to 120 destinations by 2025.
While Turkey is getting ready to become a new reference point for the world upon opening of the Mega Hub Istanbul Airport, Turkish Cargo's SMARTIST facility will have a closed area of 340.000 square meters and an annual capacity to sort out 4 million tons of cargo.
While ensuring a sustainable growth and being still preferred in air cargo transportation thanks to its infrastructure, operational capabilities, fleet and highly-competent personnel, Turkish Cargo aims to be one of the top three global air cargo brands in line with the vision set for 2025, marking the centennial of foundation of the Republic of Turkey.
