In this context, Los Angeles (LAX) flights’ frequencies will be increased 5 to 17 per week from 26 March, New York (JFK) flights’ frequencies will be increased 11 to 14 flights per week from 25 March. It will be increased to 21 flights per week from the date of 28 May, Washington (IAD) flights’ frequencies will be increased 6 to 7 per week from the date of 25 March. Increasing of flight frequencies is going to increase capacity of cargo transportation of Turkish Cargo, provide more alternatives in terms of reservation
and reduce transit shipments’ waiting times dramatically, Turkish said.

While Turkish Cargo closed 2011 with a yearly growth rate of 23.66 per cent, the upward tendency continues in 2012, the carrier said, noting that during February 2011, 26,926 tonnes of cargo-mail was
