Cargo flights to Porto to run on weekly basis from May 12, company says.

Istanbul-based Turkish Cargo, a division of national flag-carrier Turkish Airlines, has added Portugal's second largest city Porto to its cargo flight network, the company announced on Friday.


The cargo flights will be carried out on a weekly basis from Sunday (May 12) on the Istanbul-Madrid-Porto-Istanbul route, Turkish Cargo said in a statement.


"Porto, the recently-launched destination of the accomplished air cargo brand, is not only one of the most important industrial ports of Europe but also a vital exports point," it said.


Turkish Cargo covers more than 300 destinations worldwide, in addition to its 88 direct cargo markets.
