We started freighter services to Atlanta in November 2011, and we are excited to now launch passenger flights giving us extra cargo capacity into the worlds busiest airport. Our customers now have access to more capacity in addition to a network of more than 150 destinations via our state-of-the-art hub in Doha as well as innovative solutions for their cargo."
