Qatar Cargo launch world-first freighter service to Myanmar

Qatar Cargo have become the first international carrier to operate a freighter service to Myanmar.

The cargo division of Qatar airways will operate a A330 freighter on the route to Myanmar from Doha.

Qatar Airways’ Acting Chief Officer Cargo, Mr. Guillaume Halleux, said: “We are delighted to launch our eighth freighter destination for 2017, in line with our strategic expansion to our network and fleet.

Since the country’s liberalisation, Myanmar has had the fastest-growing economy in the ASEAN region, and foreign investment in local trade has seen tremendous growth.

We are extremely proud to be the first international airline to serve this emerging market with scheduled freighter service as we aspire to become the premier air cargo service provider in the region.”
