Video: Qatar Cargo launches ‘1 Million Kilos’ campaign

By Rachelle Harry

Qatar Airways Cargo has launched a charitable initiative in which it will transport 1m kg cargo free of charge.

The ‘1 Million kilos’ campaign, which was prompted by the Covid-19 outbreak, will enable charities to use the carrier’s services to transport medical supplies and humanitarian aid from July to December this year.

The carrier explained in a statement: “‘1 Million Kilos’ is the first chapter in an ambitious sustainability project called We Qare. We Qare is a series of concrete air cargo actions designed to create a positive impact on the industry and the world.”

Guillaume Halleux, chief officer cargo at Qatar Airways, added: “This action was triggered by the Covid-19 crisis. The pandemic is a tragedy for millions of people, and we looked for ways how we, as an airline, could help those in the greatest difficulty.

“This solution – shipping 1 million kilos of cargo free of charge – is a firm commitment for QR Cargo. More than just words, we wanted to act and to adopt a comprehensive approach based on actions for the future.”
