Qatar Airways Cargo has launched freighter services to Guadalajara, Mexico.

The twice-weekly freighter departs directly from Macau to Los Angeles in North America and connects onward to Mexico City arriving in Guadalajara, before departing for Doha via Liège.

Guadalajara is the capital and largest city of the Mexican State of Jalisco. It has the third-largest economy and industrial infrastructure in Mexico. Major exports on the flights consist of perishables and general cargo, while general cargo will form the majority of imports.

The new destination is being served by the airline’s Boeing 777 freighter. Qatar Airways Chief Officer Cargo Guillaume Halleux said: “We have had a very successful 2018. Our customers have welcomed the transpacific route, which is a faster solution over the Pacific for Asian exports destined for the Americas, and we are delighted to add Guadalajara as another stop on this route. The twice-weekly freighter offers significant capacity into and out of this destination and is an important addition to our expanding network of more than 60 freighter destinations. The launch of this freighter service to Guadalajara not only provides a consistent and reliable service, but also contributes to economic and trade growth in Mexico.”

2018 has been highly successful for Qatar Airways Cargo with cargo volumes increasing by 10% in 2018 compared to 2017. Exports grew by 14% and transshipments have increased by 12% over the previous year.
