Qatar Cargo offers discounts to local manufacturers

By Damian Brett

Qatar Airways Cargo will offer offer discounted rates to local Qatari manufacturers that are clients of Qatar Development Bank (QDB).

The special discount is available to more than 350 Qatari exporters – QDB clients – that wish to export their locally made products on Qatar Airways Cargo flights.

The two partners said that the offer covers all types of general goods – as long as clients hold a certificate of origin for the products – but excludes dangerous goods.

Guillaume Halleux, Qatar Airways chief officer cargo, said: “Through this agreement, we are pleased to support local Qatari manufacturers and help extend the reach and availability of their products to international markets.”

Hamad Salem Mejegheer, executive director of export development and promotion at QDB added: “We enjoy a strong strategic relationship with Qatar Airways based on common objectives and mutual understanding.

“This is reflected in our many bilateral initiatives, and this agreement is a product of such a synergistic partnership, which we are confident will open up new global markets and wider horizons for Qatari products more than ever before. Moreover, this will also help reduce export costs, and complement our ongoing efforts in supporting export development at the bank.”
