In this context air cargo sector, also it is of great importance for Turkey. The purpose of this study is to the impact on greenhouse gas emissions of air cargo traffic in Turkey is to investigate. In the study, cointegration tests were carried out both without and under structural breaks, the validity of the analysis has also been verified by the error correction model. As a result of the analysis, a positive and significant cointegration relationship was found between air cargo freight traffic and greenhouse gas emission series. Testing of the model with the error correction model was also made. It has demonstrated the importance for Turkey's economy of the air cargo sector, efforts were made to offer optimal solutions for both the balanced growth of the sector and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
