Qatar Airways Cargo has taken delivery of its fourth Airbus A330-200 freighter.
The A330-200F has a 70 tonnes payload and a range of 7,400 km.
Ulrich Ogiermann, Qatar Airways chief officer cargo said: “We are delighted to receive our latest A330 freighter which will assist us in our growth by providing even more capacity and range for our customers, on both scheduled and charter operations.”
The large main-deck cargo door allows the freighter to accept all commonly-used pallets and containers, ranging from high-value consumer goods to express packages and perishables.
It can transport up to 23 side-by-side main deck pallets, with flexibility for arrangements such as single-row loading of 16 pallets and a mix of 9 AMA containers with four pallets.
