Qatar adds direct flights to Macau and then across the Pacific

Qatar Airways Cargo has launched twice-weekly freighter services from Doha to Macau, adding the destination to its Guangzhou, Hong Kong and Shanghai portfolio.
The Boeing 777 freighter, offering 100 tonnes cargo capacity, will continue from Macau to Los Angeles and Mexico City, before flying on to Liege, Belgium and then back to the carrier’s hub in Doha.
Qatar Airways chief officer cargo, Guillaume Halleux, said: “We have launched our newest freighter destination, Macau, just in time for the holiday season when airfreight 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.” 
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.
