Qatar Airways Cargo has launched Airbus A330F flights to Lagos, Accra and Guangzhou.

Freighters to Lagos and Accra commenced on 6 December 2014. The twice weekly freighter service operates from Doha to Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos and then onward to Accras Kotoka International Airport, with a scheduled stop in Europe before returning to Doha. The thrice-weekly direct freighters to Guangzhou commenced on 3 December 2014.

In addition to the new routes, Qatar Airways Cargo recently expanded its frequencies to freighter destinations Erbil, Kolkata, Delhi and Istanbul, thereby providing a capacity boost to these routes.

An additional frequency was also added on the Houston-Liege-Doha freighter route.

Furthermore, from this month onwards, freighter frequencies are being increased to Brussels, Chennai, Johannesburg, Nairobi and Shanghai.

Mr. Ulrich Ogiermann, Qatar Airways Chief Officer Cargo said, There is clearly huge potential in the West African states of Nigeria and Ghana as well as China. Our focus is to improve connectivity and provide a growing network of destinations and quality operations to our customers. With the introduction of scheduled freighter services to Lagos, Accra and Guangzhou, Qatar Airways Cargo will be able to provide air transportation services to even more industries worldwide on our growing network of more than 140 destinations.

It has been a highly productive year for Qatar Airways Cargo with the launch of QR Pharma for pharmaceuticals and healthcare products and QR Fresh for perishable products; the migration to the fully automated, state-of-the-art cargo facility at Hamad International Airport; and the launch of 11 freighter destinations in 2014.
