The cargo carrier, which was in sixth place in the same period the previous year, surpassed the biggest brands in America, Europe and the Far East, rising to third place, the THY Press Office said, citing International Air Transport Association (IATA) data.
The company had the highest growth rate of the top 25 air cargo carriers, with a 5.7 per cent market share in June 2021, according to the freight tonne kilometres (FTK) data.
According to IATA's April statistics, Turkish Cargo moved up the rankings by transporting one out of every four cargo exports in Hungary, with a market share of nearly two per cent. The statistics for May indicated that the company surpassed many strong rivals, having transported 1,668 tonnes of air cargo, ranking second in Switzerland in cargo exports.
The cumulative data published by International Air Cargo Information Provider World Air Cargo Data (WACD) in June, meanwhile, showed the Turkish Cargo rose to third place in Canada and Malaysia cargo exports.
Said THY chairman Ilker: 'Achieving this performance, especially in a crisis period, is an important indicator that we do not recognise any obstacles in front of our success. I believe that Turkish Cargo will continue to rise and it will carry our flag to the top as well.'
