Turkish to operate freighter to Billund Airport

Cargo Center Billund Airport Denmark Scandinavia

Turkish Cargo will start a freighter service on 10 April to Billund Airport, which is seen as a major boost to exporters in the Danish market.

The carrier will operate an Airbus A310 Freighter that lifts 45-50 tonnes of cargo and will run the service once a week.

The general sales and service agents appointed to serve the route is NordicGSA and its director and sales manager for Denmark, Thomas Frederiksen says: “We received the final confirmation only shortly before Easter, so we have not yet started out active sales and marketing work for this new service. But it is definitely good news that will be well received among customers.”

He says NordicGSA will look to fill the aircraft with Danish exports, but will probably also attract export cargo from Norway too.

Frederiksen adds: “The Sunday flight schedule is absolutely ideally suited to the needs of Danish exports, transiting shipments through Istanbul Ataturk Airport and reaching destinations on the carrier’s global network by early Monday.”

NordicGSA also sells the cargo capacity on Turkish Airline’s three daily bellyhold services from Copenhagen Airport, expanding to four flights from May 2016.
