Qatar Airways Cargo has received its latest Boeing 777 Freighter in Doha – taking its freighter fleet to 21.

Chief officer for cargo, Ulrich Ogiermann says: “The arrival of our newest Boeing 777 freighter comes at a time when we are consciously strategising our freighter network expansion this year, above and beyond the unprecedented demand and growth in our charter services.

“Through our expanding fleet of 21 freighters, we offer increased capacity and flexibility to our customers, providing them access to any major air trade markets across the world.”

The B777F has a payload capacity of 102 metric tonnes, and is capable of flying 9,070 km. Qatar Airways Cargo operates the B777F on long-haul routes to the Americas, Europe, the Far East, Asia and some destinations in Africa.

The airline will receive another Boeing 777 freighter later this year, increasing its freighter fleet to a total of 22 aircraft by the end of 2017.
