Qatar Airways has announced it plans to become a major player in three new cargo markets: Transpacific, Australia and South America in the next nine months.
This major enhancement of the carrier’s network is made possible by the constant growth of its fleet, which now includes nine Boeing 777F, eight Airbus A3330F and two Boeing 747F aircraft, as well as the opening of its new European hub in Luxembourg.
The cargo carrier projects that its pure cargo fleet will grow to 22 aircraft by 2017 and from July 1, 2016, the carrier will double its flights into and out of Luxembourg providing better connectivity for its customers.
Qatar Airways Cargo will add Halifax (Canada) and New York (JFK) to its freighter network in July 2016.
