Turkish Airlines has placed an order for four additional Boeing 777 Freighters, further solidifying its position in the global air cargo market. This new acquisition will bring the airline’s total number of 777 Freighters to 12.

“This new investment in expanding our cargo fleet underscores our commitment to meeting the growing global demand for air freight services,” said Ali Türk, Chief Cargo Officer at Turkish Airlines.

“The addition of these Boeing 777 Freighters will not only enhance our operational capabilities, but also serve as another step in our strategic vision to reach the top of the air cargo sector worldwide while maintaining our leading position with our unparalleled service and efficiency for our customers across the globe,” he added.

“We are proud to continue our long-standing partnership with Turkish Airlines and support its expansion of cargo operations with the addition of Boeing 777 Freighters,” commented Paul Righi, Vice President of Boeing Commercial Sales for Eurasia.

“The 777 Freighter’s payload capacity, range, and flexibility will enable Turkish Airlines to deliver exceptional customer service while maximising operational efficiency.”

The purchase of these additional freighters is aimed at addressing the increasing demand for freight services, driven by the rapid growth of e-commerce and the need for efficient and reliable global transportation. The new aircraft will enable Turkish Airlines to optimise its cargo operations, reduce costs, and ensure timely delivery of goods worldwide.

The Boeing 777 Freighter boasts a maximum payload capacity of 102 metric tonnes and a range of 9,200 kilometres. With over 265 deliveries, it is Boeing’s best-selling freighter aircraft to date. In addition to freighters, Turkish Airlines operates a diverse fleet of Boeing aircraft, including the 777-300ER, Next-Generation 737, 737 MAX, and 787 Dreamliner.

This latest order will triple Turkish Airlines’ 777 Freighter fleet, adding 408 metric tonnes to its cargo capacity.
