Pegasus Airlines’ Cargo directorate and Bahcesehir University’s faculty of economics, administrative and social sciences co-hosted the ‘International Transport and Logistics Conference’ at the Besiktas Campus in Istanbul.
Hosted by Pegasus Airlines Cargo vice president Aydin Alpa and Dr Yavuz Gunalay, vice dean of Bahcesehir University’s faculty of economics, administrative and social sciences professor, the conference brought together prominent local and international executives in the air, sea and road logistics sectors.
Pegasus Airlines CFO Serhan Ulga and Operational Control Center (OCC) Manager Umit Kula also shared their industry know-how with students.
Alpa emphasised the importance of the conference as a platform for bringing together industry leaders as well as providing an environment for students looking to join the sector where academic experience is brought together with the experience of the professionals.
Alpa commented: “Turkey is a vital logistics hub in the region due to its geographical location, hence we anticipate further growth and expansion in the sector in the near future. As Pegasus Airlines Cargo, we currently carry air cargo across 37 countries and 94 different locations.
“We continue to invest in and further prepare for the expansion of our flight network as fast as we can obtain traffic rights from the Civil Aviation Authority.”
