Qatar Airways Cargo, Qatar Development Bank start initiative to support local perfume exports
Qatar Airways Cargo and Qatar Development Bank (QDB) have introduced an initiative to support local perfume manufacturers in the state of Qatar. The cargo carrier is offering discounted rates to local Qatari perfume manufacturers to export to international markets.
Through this initiative, the airline will help boost exports and sales of locally manufactured perfumes to international markets and provide opportunities for Qatari exporters to expand their business activities through business to consumer channels. Local manufacturers, through the airline’s approved network of courier companies, will have access to Qatar Airways’ extensive global network and modern fleet to transport their products.
Qatar Airways chief officer cargo, Guillaume Halleux, said, “We are pleased to support the growth and success of local exporters and help diversify the economy of the state of Qatar. Being a leading cargo carrier, we are well placed to help businesses in Qatar export their products to an international market utilising our state-of-the-art and modern fleet.”
Hamad Salem Mejegheer, executive director of export development and promotion at QDB said, “Through its partnership with Qatar Airways, QDB is introducing yet another initiative that supports Qatari export businesses by offering them an additional way to access new markets and compete globally, while acting as a powerful catalyst for socio-economic development. This initiative perfectly complements QDB’s existing range of SME-focused financial and advisory solutions that empower them throughout the entire entrepreneurial journey.”
Amidst the global pandemic, Qatar Airways Cargo continues to operate its scheduled freighters, passenger freighters, belly-hold passenger flights and charters globally, ensuring the continuity of global trade. The carrier has remained agile and innovative and quickly adapted to the new normal, displaying commitment to excellence and that is one of the reasons it has become the largest international carrier and grown its market share even during the pandemic.
