In Turkey, air export and import shipping services are in constant demand. This is due to the country’s well developed network of over 50 airports. 23 centers serve international flights and 32 are intended for domestic air trips.
Istanbul, Antalya, Ankara, Dalaman, Izmir, and Bodrum stand out among the best cities serving air traffic in Turkey.
Istanbul International Airport, also referred to as the “new airport” or the “third airport,” is the city’s most recently built airport after the Ataturk and Sabiha Gokcen airports. Due to the lack of expansion opportunities for the two legacy airports, the new İstanbul Havalimanı airport opened its doors on October 29, 2018.
According to immediate plans, this Istanbul airport will become the largest in the world and will serve 150 million passengers every year. In the future, it is planned to serve to 200 million passengers a year with routes to 350 destinations.
The strategic importance of air transportation in Turkey is due to the country’s favorable geographical location. Well developed trade relations with the countries of Europe, Asia, the CIS, and China ensure that Eurasia’s main transit hub is always busy.
In 2019, AsstrA successfully executed logistics projects supporting the transportation of consumer goods from China to Turkey and technical equipment from Turkey to the CIS.
In 2020, the AsstrA international corporate group plans to serve clients with more air shipments via its Istanbul office. These shipments will mainly involve routes between Turkey and Russia, the CIS, the European Union, and China.
“The Turkish air transportation market is highly competitive. Nevertheless, the AsstrA team strives to provide top-quality, competitively priced services. When ordering air projects with AsstrA, our clients can benefit from door-to-door transportation, customs clearance support in the origin and destination countries, cargo consolidation, and delivery via direct flights,” says Anton Sejchasov, Head of AsstrA’s Air Cargo Division.
AsstrA customers receive personalized 24/7 service delivered in their native language. At the company’s Turkish office, a team of experts with extensive air transport experience has already been formed.
“Hi-tech goods, pharmaceuticals, and textiles are the most frequently transported goods to and from Turkey. Our experience in air transportation – including for oversized cargo – helps open up long-term growth prospects for our customers. For these and many other reasons, the AsstrA Air Department is now open for business in Istanbtul,” says Karol Baranczuk, Deputy COO for Partial Loads at AsstrA.
