MNG orders more A330 freighters

MNG Airlines, the largest Turkish all-cargo operator, has placed a follow-on order with Airbus for two more A330-200Fs to support its expanding cargo operations. These aircraft are in addition to the two firm orders for the A330-200F that the carrier placed in 2007, and which now brings its total orders for the type to four.
“We are pleased to add to our previous order for the A330-200F, so we can start implementing our growth strategy when the worldwide freighter market recovers from the recession,” said Mehmet Nazif Günal, founder and chairman of MNG Companies Group. “We are fully convinced that the A330-200 Freighter aircraft, the newest member of the A330/A340 family, is the right aircraft to contribute to achieving our goals, and allow us to operate the most modern and efficient fleet of cargo aircraft in Turkey.”
MNG Airlines’s currently operates scheduled flights to Estonia, France, Germany, Italy and the UK from Istanbul and charter flights around the globe.
