Posted 16 January 2018 · Add Comment

Turkish Cargo has launched cargo flights to Miami. Turkish Cargo’s Miami cargo flights are to be operated with Boeing 777-200F, the cargo aircraft newly acquired the past month.

Turkish Cargo will be connecting Miami to 120 countries through more than 300 destinations with its Istanbul-Madrid-Miami departing flights and Miami-Houston-İstanbul return flights.

Turkish Cargo, which has been transporting 110 tons of belly cargo weekly on Turkish Airlines passenger aircraft to Chicago, Atlanta and New-York; has now reached four destinations in the United States with Miami. The flag cargo carrier will then show a 100 ton capacity increase to the North American market with wide body freighters to reach 220 tons weekly.

Miami Airport being the largest in the United States and ranked 10th in the international cargo market, stands out for its capacity of handling perishable goods supply chain, which represents 47 percent of the international transit cargo, offering high-end infrastucture.
