Turkish Cargo rewards loyal customers

ISTANBUL: April 10, 2017. Coincident with its move to larger offices in Hong Kong, Turkish Cargo has been recognizing its customers in the autonomous territory as well as in Guangzhou, Mumbai, Colombo and the Maldives.

Speaking to over 80 agents at the opening of its new offices, Turkish Airlines chief cargo officer Turhan Özen said: "As a new team member in Cargo, I found here in Hong Kong a strong team and strong supporters. We believe our current cooperation with our business partners will get stronger in 2017 with our increasing quality and capacity."

Turkish Cargo Sri LankaStarting with its first passenger flight to Guangzhou in January 2011, Turkish Cargo is now supporting the market with daily B777 passenger aircraft plus three weekly freighters that will increase to four flights next month.

"The ability of airlines in the global economy to offer high-quality products at competitive prices to consumers around the world is becoming more important. For this reason, Turkish Cargo strengthens its position as one of the world's fastest growing air cargo carriers," he added.
