Qatar Airways Cargo has unveiled plans to launch
freighter operations to four new destinations in the Americas,
starting 2 February 2017.
Boeing 777 freighters will fly twice a
week to the South American cities of Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo,
Quito and the North American city of Miami.
The twice weekly freighter service will depart
from Doha via Luxembourg, the cargo carrier’s European hub, with
stops at Sao Paulo in Brazil, Buenos Aires in Argentina and Quito
in Ecuador. On the return leg, the freighter will stop in Miami,
Florida and Luxembourg before arriving in Doha.
These new freighter services will
supplement the belly-hold cargo capacity on Qatar Airways daily
flights to Sao Paulo, Buenos Aires and Miami.
Chief Officer Cargo, Mr. Ulrich Ogiermann, said, “We are excited
to start 2017 with the launch of four new freighter destinations.
These new destinations will connect the burgeoning import and
export markets in the Americas region with the rest of the world.
Through our expertise in specialised solutions, namely QR Pharma
for pharmaceuticals and QR Fresh for perishables, we are able to
offer our customers a seamless and an unbroken cool chain for
their temperature-sensitive products via our state-of-the-art
fully automated hub in Doha.”
The world’s third largest cargo carrier recently took delivery of
its 11th Boeing 777 freighter, taking the total count of
freighters in operation to 20.
