Qatar Airways Cargo has further boosted its growing network, with increased flight frequencies to popular destinations in the Middle East, Europe and Americas to meet growing demand this winter season.
The cargo carrier serves over 20 passenger and freighter destinations in the Middle East. It recently launched a new freighter service to Riyadh, operating Boeing 777 freighters twice a week, with 100 tonnes cargo capacity each way, per flight.
Cargo capacity is also set to increase to and from other Middle Eastern cities, as the airline increases its flights from 2 to 4 for Kuwait, and from 1 to 3 for Muscat by adding two A310 freighters per week to each of these cities.
In Europe, the cargo carrier offers air freight services to and from 48 destinations, operating both, belly-hold cargo services and freighters. It recently launched two new freighter stations in Athens and Vienna. Qatar Airways Cargo will operate weekly flights to Greece with 100 tonnes of cargo capacity each way using its Boeing 777 freighter and once a week to Vienna, with over 35 tonnes of cargo capacity each way, using its A310 freighter.
Qatar Airways Cargo has also introduced belly-hold cargo services to Dusseldorf effective 15 November, expanding its network in the European region. The launch of daily flights between the two cities increases cargo capacity from Germany to over 1,500 tonnes each way, each week.
The carrier will also be increasing its flights to Amsterdam by adding three weekly freighter flights effective 5 November 2022 and three weekly passenger flights effective 23 December 2022.
Lastly, in the Americas, the airline covers 21 passenger and freighter destinations and has introduced additional frequency to Chicago, increasing its freighter flights from 10 to 11 weekly in addition to a daily passenger service.
Guillaume Halleux, Chief Officer Cargo, said, “there is a great potential for growth in many regions as our winter schedule changes indicate. We are happy to introduce frequency upgrades and give our customers access to more direct capacity which will ultimately benefit their business.
“In line with our Next Generation strategy, we will always put customers at the heart of everything we do by continuing to invest in our fleet, infrastructure, network, products, service and technology,” he added.
