Qatar Cargo selects GSAs for Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Egypt

By Rachelle Harry

Qatar Cargo has selected general sales agents  (GSAs) to recommence its cargo sales and bookings in Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Egypt following the lifting of a blockade.

ECS Group subsidiary Globe Air Cargo will handle the carrier’s UAE bookings; Yusuf Bin Kanoo co. Ltd will oversee its bookings in Saudi Arabia; and Venus Air Cargo will mange its bookings in Egypt.

Currently, Qatar Cargo operates bellyhold flights to Riyadh and Jeddah in Saudi Arabia; Abu Dhabi and Dubai in the UAE; and Alexandria and Cairo in Egypt.

Guillaume Halleux, Qatar Airways chief officer of cargo, commented: “The resumption of passenger flights to these three countries is great news, allowing us to re-establish trade and support our customers. Along with the flights, we will also be offering trucking services to and from other offline points within these countries.

“We are pleased to appoint these GSAs who have an excellent reputation and share the common values of customer centricity and service excellence. We are certain that they will help promote the Qatar Airways Cargo brand further and grow our footprint.”

The move comes after the airline was able to restart flights into Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Egypt after a blockade on Qatar was lifted in January.
