Turkish Cargo Introduces Flights to Brazil’s Viracopos Airport
Turkish Cargo has moved its operations at the Guarulhos International Airport in Sao Paulo, the capital of the identically-named Brazilian state and the most densely populated city in South America, to the Viracopos International Airport (VCP), located near the major trade and technology hub Campinas.
The city of Campinas, which is considered Brazil’s scientific, technological and industrial development center also drew the attention of Turkish Cargo with its good infrastructure.
Turkish Cargo’s flights to Sao Paulo’s Campinas are carried out by Boeing 747 and 777 freighters.
Sao Paulo is especially known for its exports of dried milk, vitamin pills, fruits and vegetables, poultry products, unprocessed leather, automobiles and spare parts to Asia and the Middle East.
The main imports of Sao Paulo consist of mobile phones and accessories, automobiles and accessories, mechanical and petrochemical products, and textile products among others. Having a strong cargo traffic of perishable goods with Europe and textile products with Asia and the Middle East, Sao Paulo has become an even more important destination for Turkish Cargo.
