Qatar Airways Cargo has started operating its second freighter service to Delhi, India. This second frequency builds rapidly on the back of the first freighter service from Doha which arrived at Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport on 4 May, this year. 

Qatar Airways Chief Officer Cargo, Mr. Ulrich Ogiermann said: “India is a highly important market for Qatar Airways Cargo. We are delighted to start our second freighter service to Delhi, just two months after launching the first freighter on 4 May.

“Delhi has one of India's largest and fastest growing retail industries, and on top of that, it is an important commercial capital for Asia.”

Qatar Airways Cargo now operates the twice-weekly service between Doha and Delhi, using the Airbus A330 freighter, with freighters departing on Tuesdays and Sundays from Doha. Qatar Airways already operates two daily passenger flights to Delhi.

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.

Qatar Airways Cargo completed the transition from a manually handled cargo environment to a fully automated cargo terminal at Hamad International Airport when it moved to the new state-of-the-art facility.

The brand new cargo terminal at Hamad International Airport offers the very latest technology and five-star service to customers across the globe. The step-change from the original manual system has been significant, with all importers and clearing agents in Doha benefiting from an enhanced delivery system for all their cargo.

Qatar Airways Cargo serves more than 40 exclusive freighter destinations worldwide via its Doha hub and also delivers freight to 144 key business and leisure destinations globally on 134 aircraft.
