Posted 19 July 2019 · Add Comment

Qatar Airways Cargo has added Singapore as a new freighter destination on its transpacific freighter route.

 

The twice-weekly Boeing 777 freighters arrive into Singapore from Chicago. From Singapore, the freighter departs for Macau on Tuesdays and Saturdays and onward to Los Angeles, Mexico City and Guadalajara in the Americas before arriving in Doha via Liege. More than 100 tonnes of cargo capacity is offered on each flight leg. 

Qatar Airways chief officer cargo Guillaume Halleux said: “Our customers have warmly welcomed the transpacific service which is evident from the full loads on the route. The addition of Singapore to the transpacific route will enable exporters in Singapore to transport their cargo to North American markets directly and faster without a stopover in Doha. Qatar Airways’ Cargo network in Asia Pacific now covers nine freighter destinations and we are pleased to offer an expanding network to our customers worldwide.”

Changi Airport Group’s managing Ddirector for Air Hub Development, Lim Ching Kiat said: “We are delighted to welcome Qatar Airways' new freighter operations at Changi Airport. Qatar’s new freighter flights will deepen Singapore’s air connectivity with the USA, our third largest cargo market[1]. In addition, the new flights will also link Changi Airport to Macau and Mexico via freighters for the first time. We look forward to these new flights which will give our partners and customers added options in their supply chain management.”
