A deal between the Turkish Exporters' Assembly (TİM) and Turkish Airlines on cargo shipment has produced good results, helping companies boost their exports. Under the deal, Turkish Airlines offers up to a 30 percent discount on cargo fees, which resulted in a 23 percent increase in export volume.
To date, TİM has inked three protocols with the flag carrier, said Mustafa Gültepe, the president of the exporters' association. "Thanks to those agreements and Turkish Cargo, which has operations in 132 countries, we were able to reach out to distant markets," he added.
The cooperation between Turkish Cargo, which has the world's largest international cargo flight network and establishes trade bridges between continents, and the Turkish Exporters Assembly (TIM) has had a positive impact on exports.
