Qatar Airways adds Changi to freighter network


Qatar Airways Cargo has added Singapore as the newest freighter destination on its transpacific freighter route, with two Boeing 777 Freighter flights a week.

The flights arrive into Singapore from Chicago, and from Singapore depart for Macau on Tuesdays and Saturdays onward to Los Angeles, Mexico City and Guadalajara before arriving in Doha via Liege.

More than 100 tonnes of cargo capacity will be available on each flight leg.

Guillaume Halleux, chief cargo officer of Qatar Airways says: “Our customers have warmly welcomed the transpacific service which is evident from the full loads on the route. The addition of Singapore to the transpacific route will enable exporters in Singapore to transport their cargo to North American markets directly and faster without a stopover in Doha.”

Lim Ching Kiat, managing director for air hub development at Changi Airport Group says: “Qatar’s new freighter flights will deepen Singapore’s air connectivity with the USA, our third largest cargo market. In addition, the new flights will also link Changi Airport to Macau and Mexico via freighters for the first time. We look forward to these new flights which will give our partners and customers added options in their supply chain management.”
