Turkish Cargo’s Miami cargo flights are to be operated with Boeing 777-200F, the cargo aircraft newly acquired the past month, said a statement.
Turkish Cargo will be connecting Miami to 120 countries through more than 300 destinations with its Istanbul-Madrid-Miami departing flights and Miami-Houston-Istanbul return flights, it said.
