The new A330s have replaced three Airbus A300 freighters that the airline has phased out of the fleet to make way for the new state-of-the-art aircraft.

The opening of our brand new US$1 billion cargo facility at Hamad International Airport later this year will see Qatar Airways Cargo handle 1.4 million tonnes of cargo annually, more than tripling the capacity of the existing facility.

As one of the most advanced freighter aircraft operating in the industry today, Qatar Airways Cargo will deploy the A330-200F on routes including Amsterdam, Amman, Cairo, Colombo and Chennai, complimenting the operations of the fleets Boeing 777F aircraft.

The fleet of Qatar Airways Cargo will expand further next month, with the arrival of the airlines fifth Boeing 777 freighter.
