Turkish Airlines (Istanbul) has signed a firm order for the purchase of four additional A330-200F freighter aircraft. Operated by Turkish Cargo, a brand of Turkish Airlines, the additional aircraft will help to further boost the company’s expansion in the cargo market.

Turkish Airlines operates the largest Airbus fleet in Turkey with a total of 139 Airbus aircraft in service. These include 91 single aisle aircraft, two A310 freighters, 17 A330-200s, 18 A330-300s, five A330-200Fs and six A340s.

The A330-200F is capable of carrying a payload of 65 to 70 tons, with a range of up to 4,000 nautical miles.
