Posted 17 October 2018 · Add Comment

Qatar Airways Cargo has commenced freighter services to Macau, the carrier’s fourth freighter destination in Greater China.

 

Alongside the launch of the new twice-weekly services to Macau, the carrier has also introduced transpacific freighter services, providing direct flights over the Pacific from Macau to North America, resulting in reduced flight times and faster services for customers.

China and the Americas are key markets for Qatar Airways Cargo, with many of the major industrial and manufacturing centres in the Guangdong province of China located on the West/Macau side of the Pearl River Delta. Electronics, garments and e-commerce goods are the major commodities exported out of Macau, while imports into Macau consists primarily of consumer goods. The transpacific flights also increase capacity to and from North America, further benefiting customers.

Qatar Airways chief officer cargo, Guillaume Halleux, said: “We have launched our newest freighter destination, Macau, just in time for the holiday season when air freight demand is high and the market is strong. The new services will connect manufacturing industries and exporters from the region to North America directly and quickly, without requiring a stopover at our hub in Doha. The launch of these services demonstrates our commitment to our customers in helping their businesses grow, while also enabling us to expand our presence in these key regions.”
