The global air cargo market has shrunk by 28.5 percent in May.

Turkish Cargo, which has obtained the "CEIV Pharma" certificate, transported 21,547 tonnes of medicine and approximately 7,000 medical equipment between February 01 and June 30 and operated more than 1,100 flights just in June by making use of the freighters and airliners.

“During the course of the pandemic with its acute effects on a global scale, the global air cargo market was affected potently and experienced a severe shrinkage, and decreased by 18 percent between January and May, but Turkish Cargo did not experience any loss of tonnage on a year-on-year basis and acted as a global bridge to prevent the interruption of the international supply chain,” said the release.

During the course of such process, having provided service to 90 direct cargo destinations using its freighters, Turkish Cargo made use of 32 wide-body airliners while it has performed air cargo operations to more than 60 destinations, including London, Moscow, Oslo, Shanghai, Bangkok, Doha, New York and Casablanca, by employing the wide-body airliners of Turkish Airlines.
