On the topic, Turkish Airlines Chairman of the Board and the Executive Committee, M. İlker Aycı, stated, “As the pandemic is an unprecedented threat to human health, our Turkish Cargo brand is a significant advantage when it comes to combatting this threat. Proving itself with hundreds of vaccine transportation operations to countries worldwide ranging from China to Brazil, India to the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and operations to our own country, Turkish Cargo showed its reliability by transporting 100 million doses. With these successful operations, we increased our global market share to 7.5 percent in pharmaceutical transportation and became one of the most active carriers in vaccine transportation. Concurrent with the application of the vaccines, which increases every day, we will continue to shoulder this responsibility until we win this battle against the pandemic.”

With the start of the vaccine distribution, Turkish Cargo carried 100 million vaccine doses, approximately 450 tonnes, from the vaccine production centres to destinations in its wide flight network with over 250 flights. Air cargo carriers transported the Covid-19 vaccines to key and certificated destinations such as Turkey, Baku, Rome, Belgrade, Copenhagen, Miami, Sao Paulo and Mexico City, creating a global corridor between more than 400 destinations. With 30 years of experience in special cargo transportation, the successful brand proved its capability with vaccines with different transportation requirements by carrying 7 different Covid-19 vaccines in containers with special cooling systems.

Increasing its market share in pharmaceutical transportation to 7.5 percent, Turkish Cargo enhanced its capacity for cold air depots while increasing its active and passive container capacity to prioritize medical transportation during the pandemic. The successful brand continues its operations uninterrupted to deliver emergencies such as food, aid materials, medical products and equipment while maintaining continuity in the global medical supply chain.
