MNG begins ‘new era’ with A330 freighter operations
Turkish cargo carrier MNG Airlines has entered what it describes as a “new era” with the launch of operations with its initial A330 freighter on a route linking Istanbul and Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.
The airline will operate the freighter on various scheduled routes, MNG has confirmed, as well as make it available for charters and part charters.
Offering a cargo capacity of 65 to 70 tonnes, the carrier said that the A330F will suit those looking for a medium-sized freighter.
While improving its offering to shippers and forwarders looking for further scheduled cargo caapcity, MNG added: “Due to its versatile cargo main-deck configuration, the aircraft will be attractive for potential niche market operations and special cargo request.”
As well as the A330F, MNG also flies A300 and B737 freighters. These are currently operated to locations such as Cologne, Amsterdam, Munich and Tripoli. It also maintains its own warehouse at Istanbul’s Ataturk International airport.
