The carrier said the growth comes on the back of several new service launches last year.
Turkish Cargo extended its cargo flights network upon initiation of new lines to Zaragoza (Spain), Vilnius (Lithuania), Liege, Brussels (Belgium), Miami (US), Toronto (Canada), Houston (US), Bogota (Colombia), Mexico City (Mexico), Curaçao (Netherlands Antilles), Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam), Taipei (Taiwan), Navoi (Uzbekistan) and Muscat (Oman).
