Turkish Airlines cargo brand, Turkish Cargo in this dynamic world of air cargo carriers, has taken a significant leap to successfully secure the 3rd position worldwide, said the latest data by International Air Transport Association (IATA).
Turkish Cargo, which was earlier at the 5th position, has showcased remarkable growth, securing its place among the leading air cargo carriers globally.
The airline in the month of May 2023 surpassed top competitors in America, Europe, and the Far East by demonstrating an outstanding performance. This success can be attributed to several key factors, including the strategic increase in cargo tonnage and an expanded market share.
The Freight Tonne Kilometers (FTK), a crucial metric used in the air cargo industry, indicated a remarkable 17% increase in Turkish Cargo’s cargo tonnage compared to the previous month.
This has led to an impressive market share boost, rising from 4.7% to 5.4%, which translates to an increase of 0.8 points in just one month, as compared to April.
“As Turkish Cargo, we are steadfast in reinforcing our leading position in the industry and are committed to continuous growth and improvement. These achievements fuel our dedication to future targets, motivating us to add even more value to the air cargo industry.”Prof. Dr. Ahmet Bolat, Chairman of the Board and Executive Committee of Turkish Airlines
