SEATTLE: January 08, 2017. Turkish Airlines has ordered three more B777 freighters with a list price of approximately US$300 million each. The new order follows the delivery of two aircraft late last year.

"These freighter orders will surely contribute to our significant target for establishing a young and efficient cargo fleet," said M. İlker Aycı, Turkish Airlines chairman. "The new aircraft will be delivered this year and will provide us with additional flexibility to serve more destinations while we continue to develop our global freight service."

Turkish B777F 1Notwithstanding the automatic increase in cargo volumes created by new passenger aircraft, last year's pre-holiday air cargo supply chain rush prompted shippers and their logistics suppliers to avail themselves of full-freighter capacity wherever it was found – a sign that Boeing's forecast for new large freight aircraft is not, currently, misplaced.

Growth in 2016 was 3.6 percent and marked the fourth consecutive year of positive growth, says the manufacturer, as the air cargo industry ended 2017 on a much higher note.

Boeing suggests that "dedicated freight services offer shippers a combination of reliability, predictability, and control over timing and routing that is often superior to that of passenger operators".

As a result, it says, freighters are expected to continue carrying more than half of global air cargo "to satisfy the demanding requirements of that market" at an average growth rate of 4.2 percent per year over the next 20 years.

Part of this growing volume is likely to be humanitarian cargo as Turkish Airlines and its peers respond to increasing natural and man-made disasters worldwide.

Last year the airline provided two freighter flights to Mogadishu to support a crowdfunding appeal by actor Ben Stiller and other celebrities on behalf of the famine in Somalia. In less than a week nearly 80,000 contributors had raised more than US$2 million.

Turkish Airlines, which operates scheduled services to the country, delivered 120 tons of nutritional supplements after more than two years of insufficient rainfall and poor harvests have led to drought, food insecurity and a risk of famine.
