Turkish Cargo and Avianca Cargo have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to explore opportunities for collaboration and strengthen air cargo connections. The aim is to enable both carriers to offer a more efficient cargo service to customers by combining resources and expertise. As part of the agreement, Turkish Cargo and Avianca Cargo are considering initiatives such as freighter capacity agreements to provide their customers with greater capacity in a wider global network.

The MoU will also enable Turkish Cargo to offer enhanced access to destinations in South America by leveraging Avianca Cargo’s network in the region. On the other hand, Avianca Cargo will increase its access to major destinations worldwide through Turkish Cargo’s wide interconnecting network. The partnership was signed during the IATA World Cargo Symposium in Istanbul.

Turhan Ozen, Chief Cargo Officer of Turkish Airlines, stated that the MoU represents a significant enhancement in air cargo services between Turkey and Latin America. Ozen also said that Avianca Cargo was chosen as their strategic partner in the region because it allows Turkish Airlines to advance its firm purpose of improving its global cargo operations.

Gabriel Oliva, CEO of Avianca Cargo, added that the agreement represents the possibility of strengthening bilateral cooperation between both airlines, new commercial opportunities, and a closer operational, technological, and product collaboration. He believes that the partnership will allow both airlines to achieve the highest levels of product offer, service, and value for the benefit of their customers.

The two airlines will continue to explore new areas of partnership and deepen their cooperation in the future.
