Turkish Cargo, providing services to 120 countries in the world thanks to its extensive transportation network, launches its scheduled cargo flights to Johannesburg, the biggest industrial and commercial center in South Africa, and Madagascar, the largest island of Vanilla Islands.
With the majority of its exportation performed to European and American countries, South Africa exports a great variety of products right across the world. The products exported by South Africa generally consist of machinery, electrical – electronic equipment, chemicals and automotive parts, and such products are mainly exported by air cargo and currently carried by passenger flights operated by Turkish Airlines.
Situated at the eastern coast of the African continent, Madagascar comes to the forefront as a market which exports a wide range of goods. Mainly vanilla, tropical fruits and textile products are transported to European and American countries while live crabs and sea products are transported to the Far East from Madagascar.
The cargo flights, to be initiated to both destinations by Turkish Cargo, will allow diversification in terms of variety of products transported.
Turkish Cargo, providing its customers with the best connections to key production and trade centers in the world, strives to develop attractive opportunities with high-end quality services in order to meet customer needs in the region and bring the world even closer.
Turkish Airlines was founded as a national airline company in 1933. In 1936, it transported its first international cargo. Beginning with mail and important documents, the cargo transportation has evolved over time to meet customer needs. In 2000, as part of the Turkish Airlines restructuring, the cargo activities of Turkish Airlines were consolidated into Turkish Cargo. Turkish Cargo extended its services with its scheduled cargo flights and trucking network to develop regional commerce and meet expanding customer demand.
