Qatar Airways Cargo has taken delivery of its
thirteenth Boeing 777 freighter.
Continuing its trajectory of rapid
growth and expansion, the world’s third largest international
cargo carrier’s fleet now includes 22 freighters, comprising eight
Airbus A330F, 13 Boeing 777F and one Boeing 747-8F.
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.”
Airways Cargo received delivery of its first Boeing 777 freighter
in 2010, and today the cargo carrier operates a fleet of 13 Boeing
777 freighters on long-haul routes to the Americas, Europe, Asia
Pacific and select destinations in Africa.
With a payload capacity
of more than 100 metric tonnes, the Boeing 777F is capable of
flying 9,070 km.
