By Rachelle Harry

Turkish Cargo has expanded its network with the addition of numerous direct routes to destinations in Europe, the Middle East and Asia.

Last month, the carrier added London Heathrow Airport in the UK and Henri Coanda Airport in Romania as European network destinations.

In addition, new direct cargo services in Asia include Suvarnabhumi Airport in Thailand, Singapore Changi Airport and Allama Iqbal Airport in Pakistan.

Rafic Hariri Airport in Lebanon has also been added as a new direct cargo destination in the Middle East.

Turkish Cargo now operates direct cargo services to 31 European destinations, 22 Middle Eastern destinations and 16 Asian destinations.

The carrier operates its fleet of 361 aircraft — 25 of which are freighers — across its growing network.

Last year, Turkish Cargo reported the highest growth rate of the top 10 freight carriers as IATA data showed traffic increased by 19.3% year on year to just over 7bn cargo tonne kms.
