Taking off from Everett Paine Airport (Seattle/USA) and landing at Ataturk Airport on Wednesday, the Boeing-777 Freighter falls under the new-generation freighter category capable of carrying 102 tons and equipped with a high level of fuel saving and technical safety.
Taking delivery of the first Boeing-777F freighter, which has many substantial benefits in terms of operational costs, efficiency and reliability in intercontinental journeys, in 2017, Turkish Cargo will have a total of 8 Boeing-777 Freighters by 2020.
