Qatar Airways Cargo has launched non-stop flights between the airline’s operational hub of Doha and Sialkot in north east Pakistan.

The new service, which commenced October 27, will operate every Monday using an Airbus A300-600 freighter and will capitalise on the city’s strong reputation for exporting high quality medical, sporting and leather goods.

Additionally, Sialkot, which is in Pakistan’s Punjab province and is one of the country’s most populated cities, is also famous for producing and exporting textiles due to its close proximity to Kashmir.

The addition of this new route takes the freighter network of Qatar Airways Cargo up to 20 destinations worldwide, including Lahore and Karachi in Pakistan. Other destinations from Doha are Algiers, Amsterdam, Bahrain, Chennai, Colombo, Dhaka, Dubai, Frankfurt, Istanbul, Khartoum, Luxembourg, Milan, Nairobi, Sanaa, Tunis and Zaragoza.

“This is the second new freighter service launched by Qatar Airways Cargo in the space of just two months having begun cargo flights to the Spanish city of Zaragoza in September,” said Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer, Mr Akbar Al Baker. “We now have plans to grow the number of freighters operated by Qatar Airways which will allow us to carry on adding to what is an already impressive international cargo network.
