Turkish Cargo has moved its air cargo operations in Brazil from Guarulhos International Airport in Sao Paulo to Viracopos International Airport – a hub located 100 kilometres away near the major trade and technology hub Campinas.
The carrier said the city of Campinas, which is considered Brazil’s scientific, technological and industrial development was a major draw due to its good infrastructure.
Turkish Cargo flights to Sao Paulo’s Campinas are carried out by Boeing 747 and 777 freighters.
The carrier said there is a strong cargo traffic of perishable goods with Europe and textile products with Asia and the Middle East, Sao Paulo has become an even more important destination for Turkish Cargo.
The main imports of the state of Sao Paulo consist of mobile phones and accessories, automobiles and accessories, mechanical and petrochemical products, and textile products among others.
Sao Paulo is especially known for its exports of dried milk, vitamin pills, fruits and vegetables, poultry products, unprocessed leather, automobiles and spare parts to Asia and the Middle East.
