Turkish Cargo has launched weekly freighter services to Senegal’s capital, Dakar. The Turkish carrier said the launch marked the 10th freighter service to the continent as part of its expansion plans for Africa, and the 51st freighter destination across the globe.

These all-cargo flights will supplement the already substantial cargo capacity currently available on the multiple passenger flights to the city, according to a press release issued by Turkish Airlines yesterday.

Turkish Cargo currently serves to 268 destinations — 43 of which are in Africa — in 109 countries by its 10 freighters and the belly capacities of Turkish Airlines’ 264 passenger aircraft.
