Qatar Airways Cargo is pleased to announce that it has been named ‘Global Air Cargo Airline of the Year’ by STAT Trade Times.

 

The award was given at this year’s ‘Air Cargo Africa’ air freight industry trade exhibition and conference, held in Johannesburg, South Africa from 19–21 February 2019. The cargo carrier was also runner-up for the ‘Global Air Cargo Brand of the Year’ and ‘International Cargo Airline of the Year in Africa’ awards.

Qatar Airways Group chief executive, Akbar Al Baker, said: “It gives us great honour and joy to receive these awards. Qatar Airways Cargo has come a long way to be ranked as one of the leading air cargo carriers globally. Being voted by the air freight community means a lot to us. It is for our global customers and employees that we strive to build our success upon the foundation of service excellence, always ensuring that our customers’ needs are of primary importance. Our business partners and dedicated team at Qatar Airways Cargo are the ones who have made this achievement possible, and we extend our special thanks to them.”

Qatar Airways Cargo had a successful 2018, with positive growth in both tonnage and revenue. The carrier’s cargo volumes increased by 10 per cent in 2018 over 2017.

Future plans include the construction of the carrier’s Cargo Terminal 2, which is already underway. Once complete, the terminal will increase annual cargo capacity at Qatar Airways’ hub in Doha to 3.2 million tonnes annually. The cargo carrier continues to seek new opportunities to invest and grow the business, benefitting not only its customers but the entire air cargo community.
