Qatar deploys B777Fs to its China, France airbridge
Qatar Airways Cargo announced that it is operating a large number of Boeing 777 freighters with a capacity of 100 tonnes each between China and France for its customers with the first freighter having commenced on 8 April. The freighters originate from Guangzhou and Shanghai and serve as an air bridge to France, delivering essential cargo and humanitarian aid. The cargo carrier has partnered with the French Embassy in Doha to support the French government and French Ministry of Health in their fight against the deadly pandemic.
Qatar Airways Cargo’s Boeing 777 charters will transport essential goods like surgical masks, FFP2 masks, respiratory machines, bottles for hydroalcoholic gel, and disposable hospital gowns from manufacturers in China.
To support the demand of much needed medicines and essential goods in Europe amidst the COVID-19 crisis, Qatar Airways Cargo operated numerous charters to multiple countries in Europe last month. The carrier is reorganising its network and crew to prioritise medical supplies and aid relief shipments.
Qatar Airways Cargo is also operating daily freight-only passenger flights to no less than six destinations in China as well as six cities in India. The carrier is working around the clock to ensure that importers and exporters can maintain supply and demand of fresh produce and pharmaceuticals around the world through its cargo operations.
Mr. Guillaume Halleux, chief officer cargo said, “Air freight plays a critical role in the global response to the COVID-19 crisis, transporting time sensitive medical supplies and aid relief to where they are needed. We are honored to be able to support France with a special flight operated by a crew of French nationals.”
Qatar Airways Cargo continues to utilise its full freighter fleet as per schedule and operates belly-hold cargo flights to destinations where possible.
