THY B787 9ISTANBUL: March 13, 2018. Turkish Airlines reports a 39.4 percent rise in flown cargo and mail to just under 100,000 tons for February 2018 compared to the same month a year ago.

The airline’s air cargo traffic for the first two months of the year rose 43.6 percent to over 195,000 tons as it increased capacity by two widebody passenger aircraft and six freighters.

Reflecting its continued expansion, the carrier has confirmed an order for 25 B787-9s with five options, and 25 A350-900s with the same number of options, for delivery between 2019 and 2024.

“Goodwill agreements turned into firm orders which we consider to be a very important initiative to meet our need for wide body aircraft at Istanbul’s New Airport, which will serve as our new hub once its construction process completed,” said Turkish Airlines chairman M. İlker Aycı.

“This great step, which will further strengthen our ever-expanding fleet for 2023, our Republic's 100th year, and bring our passenger's satisfaction to a much higher level will bring a great acceleration to the steady rise of our country's flag carrier, Turkish Airlines, and will also be a considerable added value for Turkish Civil Aviation,” he added.
