TURHAN ÖZEN OF TURKISH AIRLINES JOINS TIACA BOARD


Miami, Florida, USA, Monday 29th April 2019 – Turhan Özen, Chief Cargo Officer of Turkish Airlines and the head of the Turkish Cargo Brand, has been elected to the Board of The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA).

Mr Özen has an extensive knowledge of the territories surrounding Turkey, having overseen business development in the Balkans, Middle East, and African regions.

“With a sizeable and impressive new airport, Turkey is set to become a major aviation transport hub between Europe and Asia,” said Sebastiaan Scholte, Chairman of TIACA and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Jan de Rijk Logistics.

“Because Turhan will be present on the ground as this major project works towards completion, his insight will prove invaluable to the TIACA Board and its members.”

Earlier this month Turkish Airlines moved all operations from Ataturk Airport to the new Istanbul Airport, an undertaking called the “Great Move” by the airline.

The new airport, due for completion in 2027, will be the busiest hub in the world, with six runways boosting capacity for cargo.

“The air cargo industry requires effective leadership to manage the changes demanded by continuously diversified customer needs,” said Turhan Özen.

“That leadership needs to be the clear manifestation of the common will to enable us to establish well-functioning processes and a sustainable future vision.

“I believe that my Board membership at TIACA will contribute to this  leadership in terms of  a  positive way  for the change and for the development of the international air cargo sector.”

Özen is one of several new members recruited to join the TIACA board as part of an ongoing strategy launched in 2018 to focus more on members and content.
