The company has launched freighter services to Macau and is introducing direct services from Asia to North America.
Qatar Airways Cargo has commenced freighter services to Macau, the carrier’s fourth freighter destination in Greater China. Alongside the launch of the new twice-weekly services to Macau, the carrier has also introduced transpacific freighter services, providing direct flights over the Pacific from Macau to North America.
China and the Americas are key markets for Qatar Airways Cargo, with many of the major industrial and manufacturing centres in the Guangdong province of China located on the West/Macau side of the Pearl River Delta.
Macau becomes Qatar Airways Cargo’s fourth freighter destination in greater China after Guangzhou, Hong Kong and Shanghai. The cargo carrier also transports belly-hold cargo on passenger flights to seven destinations in Greater China. In North America, the carrier has a network of nine freighter destinations and 11 belly-hold cargo destinations.
The carrier is operating a Boeing 777 freighter twice a week from Doha to Macau. From Macau, it departs across the Pacific to Los Angeles and Mexico City. On the return leg, the freighter flies over the Atlantic to Liege before arriving at the carrier’s hub in Doha. One hundred tonnes of cargo capacity is offered on each flight leg.
