After a brief start-up period the Turkish carrier MNG Airlines is now connected to forwarders via the Traxon network in all countries where they operate. The airline’s principal destinations are Luton, UK, Cologne, Germany, Paris CDG and Milan (Malpensa) Italy.
After fully testing and streamlining the operation, the considerable operational and economic benefits can be quantified. Both the forwarders which buy cargo space from MNG, as well as the airline itself are gaining from the agreement according to Arslan Kavgaoğlu, Cargo Director of MNG Airlines. ‘Our customers now enjoy the advantages of more efficient and faster processing but also the opportunity to interface, at no extra cost, with other carriers within the Traxon network. This helps us provide a better service to these customers who will in turn offer the same improved service to their own clients. The Air Cargo market in Turkey has great future potential for MNG and equally for Traxon.’
MNG Airlines launched in 1997, has now evolved into the leading specialist freighter operator in Turkey. With a fleet of eight A300 B4Fs and eight F27s, MNG operates both scheduled services as well as charters.
Since Traxon Europe’s launch some 18 years ago, the company has built up a global network of offices and partnerships to become the industry leader in electronic communications, providing a whole range of tools and products for the airfreight industry. In the current tight economic climate, Traxon Europe’s services offer real benefits for all operators seeking ways of reducing costs and improving service. The new agreement with MNG Airlines is another milestone in Traxon’s market coverage within Turkey and helps to connect to new forwarders within the growing Turkish airfreight market.
