Qatar Airways Cargo will insource its entire commercial operation in Spain from February 1.

The company has successfully been represented by GSA, ATC Aviation Services in Spain since 2005. However, Qatar Airways Cargo’s Spanish operations are now ready to fly under the airline’s own flag.

“It is because our operations have now grown to such a large scale, that Qatar Airways Cargo feels the time is right to insource its commercial and customer service activities across Spain,” said Robertino Veltman, vice president Cargo Europe at Qatar Airways. “Through meticulous planning and close and professional collaboration with ATC Aviation Services, S.L., we are aiming for a smooth transition so that business continues to run as normal.”

It will eventually replace all previous contact addresses pertaining to ATC Aviation Services on February 1.

Qatar Airways Cargo offers regular flights into and from Madrid (MAD), Barcelona (BCN), Zaragoza (ZAZ), and Malaga (AGP), while customers can also benefit from services offered at offline stations in Alicante (ALC), Bilbao (BIO), Vitoria (VIT), and Valencia (VLC). These network points and capacities will remain and also will be bookable online via WebCargo by Freightos.

Qatar Cargo saw its volumes rapidly expand in the first 11 months of 2021 as the carrier began to re-introduce destinations and added to its freighter fleet.
