TT Meridian, a leading international logistics and trading company with a focus on the UK and Vietnam markets, announced the launch of a new all-cargo air route between the two countries via Turkmenistan on May 19, Airways commercial aviation magazine informed on Sunday. 

The service, operated by Turkmenistan Airlines (T5), is the first of its kind and is expected to increase bilateral trade activities between UK and Vietnam following the implementation of their free trade agreement in May 2021.
