Qatar Airways Cargo has launched freighter operations to the beautiful city of Almaty in Kazakhstan.

The twice-weekly Boeing 777 freighters, offering more than 200 tonnes of capacity each week to the Kazakh city, depart Doha on Thursdays and Sundays, arriving in Almaty on the same day. On the return, the freighters arrive into Doha via Hong Kong.

Almaty is a key financial centre and the largest metropolis in Kazakhstan. Major imports into Almaty include general cargo, fashion and high-tech products.

Qatar Airways Chief Officer Cargo Guillaume Halleux said: “2018 was a great year for us and we are excited to launch our second freighter destination in 2019, just 10 days after the launch of freighter services to Guadalajara, Mexico. The new addition further strengthens our global freighter network while expanding our footprint in Europe, which is a key market for air freight. Customers globally are offered a direct connection for imports into Almaty from our hub in Doha and can count on us for efficient and world-class service for their air freight requirements.”

Qatar Airways Cargo volumes increased by 10% in 2018 over 2017.
