Qatar Cargo creates initiative to support local perfume exports

Qatar Airways Cargo has developed an initiative with Qatar Development Bank (QDB) that supports local perfume manufacturers in the State of Qatar.

As part of the initiative, the carrier is offering discounted rates to Qatari perfume manufacturers in order to “help boost exports and sales of locally manufactured perfumes”  and to “provide opportunities for Qatari exporters to expand their business activities through business-to-consumer channels”.

In addition to its offering of discounted rates, Qatar Cargo is offering its approved courier companies, its flight network and its fleet, to transport local Qatari perfume manufacturers’ products. 

Qatar Airways chief officer of cargo, Guillaume Halleux, commented: “We are pleased to support the growth and success of local exporters and help diversify the economy of the State of Qatar.

“Being a leading cargo carrier, we are well placed to help businesses in Qatar export their products to an international market utilising our state-of-the-art and modern fleet.”

Hamad Salem Mejegheer, executive director of export development and promotion at QDB, added: “Through its partnership with Qatar Airways, QDB is introducing yet another initiative that supports Qatari export businesses by offering them an additional way to access new markets and compete globally, while acting as a powerful catalyst for socio-economic development.

“This initiative perfectly complements QDB’s existing range of small and medium enterprise (SME)-focused financial and advisory solutions that empower them throughout the entire entrepreneurial journey.”

Qatar Cargo is continuing to offer airfreight capacity on its scheduled freighters, preighters, charters and in the bellyhold of passenger flights.
