Emirates SkyCargo will expand its presence in Turkey when it begins daily, non-stop service to Sabiha Gökçen International Airport on December 15, 2015, increasing cargo capacity to and from the country by an additional 168 tonnes per week.

The flight, which will be operated by an A330-200 aircraft with 24 tonnes of cargo capacity, will be the only daily wide-body passenger aircraft with bellyhold capacity to serve Sabiha Gökçen. 

“Our cargo customers are increasingly looking for ways to ship their goods across the world at a faster pace. The introduction of service to Sabiha Gökçen not only provides an additional gateway for our customers in Turkey, but it also provides quicker access to shipping lanes for businesses located in eastern Istanbul,” said Nabil Sultan, Emirates divisional senior vice president, cargo.
