Turkish Cargo


Turkish Cargo, the air cargo brand of Turkish Airlines that provides service to 124 countries, carried 186 historical artifacts, owned by Dolmabahçe and Topkapı Palaces, to Tokyo, the capital of Japan, as the sponsor carrier, in order to be displayed at the exhibition titled as "The Ottoman Empire and Tulip Culture" held as part of the events organized for 2019 which was declared as the "Year of Turkish Culture" across Japan.

Before the carriage operation through Istanbul – Narita route, the artifacts in Topkapı and Dolmabahçe Palaces were packaged with protective materials that shielded their texture and structure before they were put into 56 high-security wooden cases. Using a wide-body B777F type air freighter belonging to Turkish Cargo, the flight carried no other cargo due to the significant nature of the operation.

Acting with the utmost care for its carriage operations involving historical artifacts, Turkish Cargo conducted this operation with its expert teams again. With this successful operation, the artifacts that have been preserved meticulously for long years in Topkapı Palace such as “Bed of Suleiman the Magnificent”, “Kaftan of Sultan Osman II”, “Ceremonial Flask” along with the artifacts in Dolmabahçe Palace such as “Yusen Shippo Vase”, “Wooden Writing Table”, and “Bamboo Mirror” which were gifted to Sultan Abdulhamid II, by Emperor Meiji of Japan, have been all delivered to Japan.

These 186 artifacts, which weigh around 8 tons and carry great significance for the Turkish culture and history, will be displayed at the National Art Center, Tokyo, between March 20 - May 20, and at the National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto, between June 14 - July 28.

Bringing the missing pieces of the ‘Gypsy Girl Mosaic’ back to its home, carrying more than 50 masterpieces, displayed at the Louvre Museum in Paris, to Tehran, as well as the ‘The Tomb of Heracles’, dating back to the Roman era, to Istanbul from Geneva, Turkish Cargo, the dynamic brand of the air cargo industry, proved once again how reliable it is in carriage of art works requiring utmost care.
