Turkish Cargo flies into Stansted

Turkish Cargo has launched an all-cargo connection linking its Istanbul hub to London Stansted Airport.
The three times a week Airbus A330 freighter service flies into Stansted on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
Different routes are operated on different flights, taking in way points such as Johannesburg in South Africa, Nairobi in Kenya, Khartoum in Sudan, Riyadh and Dammam in Saudi Arabia, Maastricht in the Netherlands and Izmir in Turkey.
According to Turkish Cargo, it expects that the new service out of Stanstedill feed the Middle East region, Africa and Asia markets.
Turkish expects to carry a wide range of British exports out of the UK on the service, including machinery, military equipment, automobiles, car parts and chemicals.
It expects to be flying into the UK mainly precious stones and gold, plastic products, automobiles, crude oil, turbo jets, smart phones and pharmaceuticals.
Stansted represents only the latest addition to the Turkish Cargo freighter network. It added Kigali in Rwanda and Muscat in Oman in August to the list of destinations served by its A330-200F, and Mexico City to its B777F network in Mexico on October 3.
And, in September, Turkish Airlines confirmed that it is to establish a new cargo unit that will serve as part of the previously announced strategic partnership with China’s ZTO Express (the world’s largest parcel distributor) and Hong Kong-based GSSA PAL Air.
