Qatar Airways boosts capacity

Qatar Airways Cargo has introduced additional freight-only passenger aircraft and freighter flights to and from Scandinavia, France and Vietnam as part of the global fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.

Five Airbus A350 flights, with a capacity of 140 cu m per flight, have been added to the existing thrice weekly, freight-only passenger aircraft services to Copenhagen, Denmark. Temperature-sensitive cargo such as insulin and perishables, alongside general cargo, are the main exports on these.

Two additional Boeing 777 and Airbus A330 freighter flights will service Oslo, Norway. The carrier is already operating six weekly freighter flights and three freight-only passenger flights to the city.

Qatar Airways will also add more freighter flights to and from Stockholm, Sweden.

The airline is also operating additional cargo flights from Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam to France. It will transport more than 2,000 tonnes of medical items, including face masks and personal protective equipment (PPE).

Guillaume Halleux, chief officer cargo, said: “Our entire team is working hard to ensure critical medical supplies are reaching places where they are needed the most.”
