Qatar Cargo Cherries Jubilee

Qatar Cargo Cherries Jubilee

     “Qatar Cargo is now the third largest cargo operator in the world after Cathay Pacific,” declared Akbar Al Baker, Group Chief Executive as QR added a second B747-8F last month.
     “We hope that our ranking will become number two this year.
     “Qatar Airways flies to over 150 passenger destinations and when we add our freighter destinations we fly to more than 196 destinations worldwide,” Akbar Al Baker said.

Cherries Jubilee

     Chilean cherries were in high demand ahead of Chinese Lunar New Year celebrations, receiving huge lift as Qatar Airways Cargo moved shipments of the much-prized seasonal favorite.
     As he prepares to make his debut upon the global leadership stage at IATA’ s World Cargo Symposium in Dallas on March 13, Chief Officer Cargo Guillaume Halleux said, “Logistics plays a fundamental role in ensuring the cherry exporters in Chile meet their clients’ expectations.
     “We are very proud to support and partner with our customers moving these prized perishables across the globe,” Guillaume added.
     “QR Fresh is the seamless cool chain for all temperature-sensitive shipments, from origin airport through to final destination.
     “Our operations at Gateway Doha Hamad International Airport are fully compliant with IATA Chapter 17 standards,” Mr. Halleux added.

Second B7478F

     Currently the world’s third largest international cargo carrier, Qatar Airways Cargo counts more than 60 exclusive freighter destinations worldwide via its Doha hub, which features a fleet of more than 200 aircraft including eight Airbus A330 freighters, thirteen Boeing 777 freighters, and two recently added Boeing B747-8Fs.
