Qatar Airways adds belly-hold capacity to China

Qatar Airways Cargo has resumed its bellyhold cargo operations to six of its passenger destinations in China.

The additional cargo capacity joins the carrier’s freighter services amid an increasing demand for the shipment of goods in and out of the region. This includes the transportation of urgent medical relief aid that is pivotal to the global fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.

The bellyhold cargo flights will be operated on a turnaround basis assuming the routes’ previously assigned flight numbers and frequencies, without any cabin crew or passengers on board.

These services will call at Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Chengdu, Chongqing and Hangzhou, adding 600 tonnes of weekly capacity. In combination with its four dedicated freighter routes to China, Qatar Airways can currently offer 1,300 tonnes of capacity per week to the country.
