Turkish Airlines orders four additional A330-200 Freighters

Turkish Airlines has signed a firm order for the purchase of four 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 already operates five A330-200F.

“The A330-200F freighter aircraft have demonstrated outstanding operational reliability and performance for our cargo transport operations. It is with this in mind that we chose to expand our freighter fleet with more A330-200F,” said Dr Temel Kotil, CEO of Turkish Airlines. “

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

THY has ordered Trent 700 engines and long-term TotalCare service support from Rolls-Royce, worth $300 million, to power the four A330 freighters.

The airline already operates 11 A330ceo passenger and five A330 freighter aircraft powered by the Trent 700.

Dominic Horwood, Rolls-Royce, Chief Customer Officer – Civil Large Engines, said: “This is further demonstration of the market’s continued demand for both the A330 and the Trent 700. We are proud that Turkish Airlines has continued to demonstrate its confidence in the Trent 700’s ability to deliver outstanding economic performance.”
