Fast growing Turkish Cargo continues to expand its network, adding the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur (KUL) and the western Indian city of Ahmedabad (AMD) to its maindeck network.
Turkish notes that Kuala Lumpur is both cultural and financial capital of Malaysia, boasting a considerable import and export potential. Typical cargo includes electronic products, medical products and spare parts to various destinations around the world, in particular Frankfurt and Amsterdam in Europe and Chicago, Atlanta, and Houston in the US.
Turkish Cargo plans to perform its Kuala Lumpur flights, which will be operated with B777F aircraft, on the Istanbul (ISL)– Kuala Lumpur – Ho Chi Minh City (SGN), Vietnam route. The carrier says this will create a strong import-export line in the region.
Located in western India, Ahmedabad is the biggest city of the State of Gujarat and Turkish is connecting it with Doha (DOH), Qatar and Bahrain (BAH) destinations which possess high import potential, it says. One of the fastest growing cities in India, Ahmedabad is a considerable pharmaceuticals market.
A holder of IATA CEIV Pharma certificate, which is the global quality standard for pharmaceutical transportation and operating as per the relevant competency criteria, Turkish Cargo aims to become an important air cargo brand for Ahmedabad. The flights will be on the DOH–AMD–ISL and BAH–AMD-ISL routes and they will be operated with A330F aircraft.
