Turkish Cargo, the air cargo brand of Turkish Airlines (THY), ranked third among the world’s leading air cargo carriers in May.
According to the statement made by the THY Press Office, Turkish Cargo ranked fifth in the same period last year, considering the monthly data published by the International Air Transport Association IATA. In May 2023, it became one of the top three air cargo carriers, leaving behind the biggest brands of America, Europe and the Far East.
According to the FTK (Freight Tonne Kilometers) data obtained by multiplying the airborne cargo tonnage with the kilometers covered, Turkish Cargo increased its mileage tonnage by 17% compared to the previous month, increasing its market share from 4.7% to 5.4%.
THY Chairman of the Board and the Executive Committee, Prof. Dr. Ahmet Bolat, whose views are included in the statement, said, “As Turkish Cargo, we continue to strengthen our leading position in the sector in line with our goal of continuous growth and development. We see these achievements as a commitment to our future goals and we are working harder to add value to the air cargo industry.”
