Qatar Airway Cargo Growth At 45%

Thu Jul 25, 2002 9:15 am

Qatar Airways' growth in the cargo market is phenomenal. Cargo tonnage in the 2001-2002 financial year rose 27% over the 2000-2001 financial year. Figures for this year are very encouraging

"We recorded a further 36 per cent rise in the first six months of 2002. In June alone, our cargo tonnage rose by 45 per cent, up from the same month in 2001."- Akbar Al-Baker, CEO of Qatar Airways

At the Farnborough Air Show Qatar Airways signed a contract with EADS EFW for the conversion of a single A300-600R which will be acquired from the second hand market later in the year. The A300-600F is expected to enter service next year and will be operated jointly with another undisclosed cargo airline.
