I am thankful to the airport authorities, the slot coordination team and the Dutch government who have helped us with the frequency increase. We are all in this together and are glad to be of help to our customers and countries globally.”
Pharmaceuticals and perishables form the majority of exports from the Netherlands while imports consist of medical equipment, vegetables, fruits and flowers.
Amsterdam is one of the biggest gateways in Europe for Qatar Airways Cargo. With the added frequencies, and additional capacity of over 5,000 tonnes to and from the Netherlands capacity has increased to over 7,500 tonnes in total.
