Turkish Airlines expanded its fleet with its own large widebody freighter in 2017 when it took delivery of its first 777F from Boeing.
Today, the carrier operates eight 777Fs and ten production A330-200Fs. In April, Turkish Airlines secured the services of a CMA CGM 2014-vintage A330-200F (1584, ex-Qatar Airways). Another (1708) has since followed. In addition, the carrier uses fellow Turkey-based ACT Airlines’ 747-400Fs and ULS Airlines Cargo’s A310-300Fs on an ACMI basis.
Ozen’s career includes nearly thirty years in sales, marketing, business development, logistics and supply chain. He is chairman of the board of directors for THY Air Cargo Transportation Inc. and is a member of the board of directors for TIACA and the advisory council for IATA.
