Qatar Airways has launched a scheduled once a week freighter service calling at Vienna airport from Doha, in addition to the Middle East carrier’s passenger flights to the European hub.

Julian Jäger, joint CEO and COO of Vienna Airport, said: “Air cargo is an important market segment for Vienna Airport, and we are continually investing in a modern and high-performance infrastructure.

“In addition to high-quality cargo services, Vienna Airport also offers extensive know-how in this area. We are very pleased with the fact that airlines recognise our competence and with the decision of Qatar Airways Cargo to now offer a regular cargo flight connection to Vienna.”

Vienna Airport has positioned itself as an important global cargo hub for Central and Eastern Europe and to Asia.

The most important consumer and economic centres in Central and Eastern Europe are reached within 24 to 48 hours.

A modern pharmaceutical handling centre for sensitive medical cargo and a separate road feeder terminal are available alongside aircraft parking bays in close proximity to terminal buildings.
