Cargo Talk - - Contents -

Qatar Air­ways Cargo started op­er­at­ing the weekly ser­vice be­tween Doha and Delhi in May 2014, us­ing the Air­bus A330 freighter, along­side the two daily pas­sen­ger flights that Qatar Air­ways al­ready op­er­ates. Qatar Air­ways Cargo re­cently strength­ened its prod­uct port­fo­lio with the launch in Jan­uary 2014 of two new pre­mium ser­vices that op­ti­mise the trans­porta­tion of time and tem­per­a­ture-sen­si­tive goods, in­clud­ing high-value phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal prod­ucts and per­ish­ables. The new ser­vices, QR Pharma and QR Fresh, add to the com­pany’s sub­stan­tial range of cargo ser­vices and fur­ther en­hance its ca­pac­ity and flex­i­bil­ity to ef­fec­tively move sen­si­tive com­modi­ties in line with the high­est world-class stan­dards. “In­dia is a highly im­por­tant mar­ket for Qatar Air­ways Cargo,” said Qatar Air­ways Chief Of­fi­cer Cargo, Ul­rich Ogier­mann. “Af­ter the launch of our ser­vice to Hy­der­abad in April, we are de­lighted to start our sched­uled freighter ser­vice to Delhi this month.”Delhi In­ter­na­tional Air­port CEO, I.Prab­hakara

Rao, said, “At Delhi Air­port, we have taken a se­ries of steps to boost cargo traf­fic, which has re­sulted in an 11% growth in ton­nage and helped us cross the 600,000 tonne mark in 2013-14, but we feel there is still a sig­nif­i­cant op­por­tu­nity to grow the cargo busi­ness in the com­ing years. This is why we wel­come the ar­rival of world-class air freight oper­a­tors like Qatar Air­ways Cargo, as a key com­po­nent in our strat­egy for de­vel­op­ing Delhi air­port as a ma­jor air freight hub in In­dia and be­yond.”
