Guillaume Halleux“The market might be less than a year ago—but it’s not bad,” insists Guillaume Halleux, Qatar Airways Chief Officer Cargo.
     “Don’t let people tell you that we are in a recession again—we are not!”
     Guillaume is approaching his third anniversary atop Qatar Airways Cargo this June.
     “I have worked internally to make sure that cargo is a strong contributor to the airline’s bottom line by making sure everyone understands our business and its objectives and possibilities.
     “We have a first-rate team at work for Qatar Airways Cargo. We have planned an extension of our air cargo handling capabilities at Doha, deepened our agreements and partnerships, and are working on introducing new products.”

     Finally from our "Reporter's Notebook," we take a trip back to recall Slammin' Sam Snead.

     We are sitting in the lower lobby of the Trump golf resort, host to a rousing CNS Partnership Conference for 2019. Above our table are some wonderful pictures of Ben Hogan, a top golfer in the 1930s and 40s.

There is a great, if not slightly unknown and perhaps overlooked, industry event  that meets September 16 until 19 as ULD CARE opens its 32nd Annual ULD CARE Conference in Montreal, Canada.
