Turkish Cargo launches Miami-bound flights with new wide body cargo aircraft

Turkish Cargo has today announced it will be launching cargo flights to Miami on January 15th 2018. The new route will be serviced by the airline’s new Boeing 777-200F aircraft, which was delivered last month.

Turkish Cargo will be connecting Miami to 120 countries through more than 300 destinations with its Istanbul-Madrid-Miami departing flights and Miami-Houston-İstanbul return flights.

Turkish Cargo, which has been transporting 110 tons of belly cargo weekly on Turkish Airlines passenger aircraft to Chicago, Atlanta and New-York; will now service four destinations in the United States with Miami. The flag cargo carrier will offer a 100 ton capacity increase to the North American market with wide body freighters to reach 220 tons weekly.

Miami Airport being the largest in the United States, and ranked 10th in the international cargo market, stands out for its capabilities in handling perishable goods, which represents 47 percent of international transit cargo.

Miami is also recognised for its cargo capabilities in handling fresh flowers, perishable fruits and vegetables, high technology products, telecommunications equipment and aircraft parts. The region is also known for its imports of textile, fish, medicine, flowers, automobile, chemicals, petrochemicals and other perishable goods.
