TURKISH Cargo is adding Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to its freighter network from Istanbul
TURKISH Cargo is adding Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to its freighter network from Istanbul. The service will start at the end of October and continue through to March 28 2020.
The twice-weekly service will be operated by one of the carrier's Boeing 777 freighters and will depart from Istanbul Ataturk Airport on Thursdays and Saturdays, arrive at Kuala Lumpur airport and then continue to Tan Son Nhat international airport in Vietnam, reported New York's Air Cargo World.
Turkish Cargo already has cargo operations at Kuala Lumpur airport from Istanbul airport, thanks to daily Turkish Airlines passenger service using an Airbus 330-300 aircraft. However, cargo operations at Malaysian and Vietnamese gateways have been rising in popularity amid the US-China trade war.
