Istanbul : Turkish Cargo's freight volumes increased by 8.8 per cent in September, while the global air cargo market as a whole shrank by 5.4 per cent in volume terms.
Turkish Cargo said that, according to that WorldACD data for September, it was the only one of the top 10 cargo airlines to achieve a positive result.
The airfreight carrier has performed particularly well of late in the Far East and America markets, it noted.
Sustainable growth has been supported by new investment, as well as through the existing capacity of freighter flights to 88 different destinations and the wide-ranging network of parent flag-carrier Turkish Airlines.
As a whole, Turkish Cargo offers freight capacity to more than 300 destinations worldwide.
It has 24 freighters as well as access to the bellyholds of Turkish Airlines' 346 passenger aircraft.
Turkish Cargo has the oft-stated aim to be one of the world's top five air cargo carriers by 2023.
The global air cargo brand, Turkish Cargo, is entitled to "GROUP A TAPA (Transpor-ted Asset Protection Associa-tion) FSR" certificate founded to reduce the loss in the international supply chain and based on the security of facilities.
TÜV Rheinland, providing independent audit services in terms of quality and security has issued this certificate for Turkish Cargo's cargo facilities at Istanbul and Atatürk Airports.
Considered very important by numerous international companies, the GROUP A TAPA FSR certificate has been accepted by global producers, logistics service providers, transporters, law enforcement bodies, and other shareholders worldwide.
