Turkish Cargo adds Munich freighter flights

Turkish Cargo will add freighter flights to Munich as it looks to capitalise on high-tech and automotive demand from the German city.

The airline said that it will use an Airbus A330F on the weekly flight between Istanbul and Munich.

“Munich is considered as the technological metropolis of Germany, and it hosts the market leaders in automotive, electronics, medical and biotechnological products,” the airline said.

Turkish Cargo chief cargo officer Turhan Ozen added: “Besides making a remarkable contribution to the need for global air cargo transportation, we are glad to add Munich, a substantial business center, to our flight network, and continue to offer a stable and reliable cooperation to the leading exporters of the market.”

The first flight of the service is due to take place on May 7.
