Aegean Fisheries and Animal Products Exporters’ Association Chairperson Bedri Girit said that although the infrastructure of Milas-Bodrum Airport is suitable for air transportation and has air cargo permit, the inability to carry out direct transportation causes cost increase and loss of time for companies.

Girit said, “The opening of the air cargo terminal with the cooperation of Turkish Exporters’ Assembly (TIM) and The Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges of Turkey (TOBB) will enable the export of not only aquatic products, but also many other products, especially fresh fruits and vegetables, from the Muğla region, and will prevent the losses of the sector.”

Pointing out that they want air cargo freight costs to the USA to be reduced to a reasonable level and the opening processes of some markets that are closed due to technical barriers to be accelerated, Girit explained, “Most of the exports to North American countries are made by air. As Turkish exporters, we expect the freight rates to be at the same level as our biggest competitor, Greece, in order not to lose our exports and not to lose the American market.”
