Qatar Cargo to fly to Argentina, Ecuador, and U.S.
The aircraft will take off from Doha to Luxembourg, and then on to São Paulo. Next, there will be another stop in Buenos Aires, followed by Quito.
On the way back, the planes will touch down in Miami and Luxembourg before reaching Doha again.
The airline said the new cargo route is intended to enhance capacity in order to meet rising import/export demand, which is partly serviced by Qatar Airways’ daily passenger flights from Qatar to São Paulo, Buenos Aires, and Miami.
The carrier’s new route will offer its specialized QR Pharma and QR Fresh solutions for pharmaceuticals and perishables.
Qatar Airways expects the bulk of goods shipped from South America to be fresh flowers, perishables and pharmaceuticals; on the way back, the planes should carry pharmaceuticals, auto industry products, chemicals, high-tech commodities, and oil and gas industry products. ■
