Qatar adds extra Atlanta capacity
01 / 06 / 2016
Qatar Airways Cargo has added bellyhold capacity to its Doha-Atlanta service through the addition of a Boeing 777 service.
The Doha-hubbed airline’s new service will fly daily and is in addition to the carrier’s existing four-times a week freighter flight.
Qatar now offers a combined 744 tonnes of capacity per week on the Doha-Atlanta route.
Qatar Airways chief officer cargo Ulrich Ogiermann said: "We started freighter services to Atlanta in November 2011, and we are excited to now launch passenger flights giving us extra cargo capacity into the world’s busiest airport."
Qatar Airways Cargo currently operates dedicated freighters to six destinations in the Americas: Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston, Los Angeles and Mexico City; as well as bellyhold cargo space to 13 hubs in the Americas.
