Qatar Airways Chief Officer Cargo, Mr. Ulrich Ogiermann, said, “We are excited to take delivery of the newest freighter just days after our first Boeing 747-8F nose loader freighter joined the fleet, and at a time when we are increasing our capacity and frequencies as part of our network expansion strategy. The new freighters will be deployed on long haul routes in scheduled services and will further boost QR Charter services, allowing us to provide bespoke air charter services for various industries, including the industrial and oil and gas sectors.”
