Turkish Cargo get in on the superhero market with transport of Batmobile
11 / 03 / 2016
For a while now pharma has been the segment of choice for the air cargo industry, but with more and more companies targeting the high-margin industry, Turkish Cargo has identified a new customer base to target: superheroes.
The Turkish cargo carrier revealed that it will be transporting the Batmobile to various destinations around the world as the vehicle’s “official carrier”.
The first movement of Batman’s car has already taken place, with Turkish Cargo transporting the car for display at the ITB travel trade fair in Berlin at the Turkish Airlines’ booth.
The transportation of Batman’s car comes as the airline is the official global airline partner of the upcoming movie, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
In the film, a pivotal scene unfolds aboard a 777 Turkish Airlines plane with Wonder Woman, played by Gal Gadot.
It is not known if Turkish Cargo is in discussion with any other superheroes and many have the ability to fly, probably mitigating the need for an air transport solution.
The X-Men, with their Blackbird aircraft, are also understood to be looking into the possibility of entering the super hero air cargo market to supplement income from their superhero related activities.
