Qatar Airways Cargo has added freighter flights to Warsaw as it continues to expand in eastern Europe.

The new weekly Boeing 777 freighter service began on October 1 and will add 100 tonnes of capacity per week to its existing 10-times-per-week bellyhold operation.

In total, the carrier will offer more than 200 tonnes of capacity out of the Polish capital each week to Qatar.

The majority of the imports and exports consist of general cargo, and perishables.

The airline said that it already has a large footprint in eastern Europe and serves seven destinations with its passenger and freighter services.

In addition to Warsaw, Qatar Airways Cargo provides cargo capacity to and from Budapest, Prague, Bucharest, Zagreb, Belgrade, and Sofia.

Elisabeth Oudkerk, senior vice president cargo sales and network planning, said: “Qatar Airways Cargo has been serving Eastern Europe for many years and is very pleased to announce freighters to Warsaw which will complement the passenger flights to this important city.

“The launch of this service will provide consistent and reliable freighter operations between Poland and Qatar.”

Qatar Cargo hopes to benefit from additional China flights
