Qatar Airways Cargo has launched freighter
operations to the beautiful city of Almaty in Kazakhstan.
The twice-weekly Boeing 777 freighters,
offering more than 200 tonnes of capacity each week to
the Kazakh city, depart
Doha on Thursdays and Sundays, arriving in Almaty on the same day.
On the return, the freighters arrive into Doha via Hong Kong.
Almaty is a key financial centre and the largest
metropolis in Kazakhstan. Major imports into Almaty include
general cargo, fashion and high-tech products.
Qatar Airways Chief Officer Cargo, Mr. Guillaume Halleux, said,
“2018 was a great year for us and we are excited to launch our
second freighter destination in 2019, just 10 days after the
freighter services to Guadalajara, Mexico. The new
addition further strengthens our global freighter network while
expanding our footprint in Europe, which is a key market for air
freight. Customers globally are offered a direct connection for
imports into Almaty from our hub in Doha and can count on us for
efficient and world-class service for their air freight
Qatar Airways Cargo volumes increased by 10 per
cent in 2018 over 2017.
