Eager to further expand its network in the Americas, Qatar Airways Cargo has introduced freighter services to Guadalajara.
Served by a Boeing 777 freighter, the twice-weekly service departs directly from Macau to Los Angeles in North America and connects onward to Mexico City, arriving in Guadalajara before departing for Doha via Liège.
Chief officer cargo, Qatar Airways, Guillaume Halleux commented: “We have had a very successful 2018. Our customers have welcomed the transpacific route, which is a faster solution over the Pacific for Asian exports destined for the Americas, and we are delighted to add Guadalajara as another stop on this route.
“The twice-weekly freighter offers significant capacity into and out of this destination and is an important addition to our expanding network of more than 60 freighter destinations. The launch of this freighter service to Guadalajara not only provides a consistent and reliable service, but also contributes to economic and trade growth in Mexico,” Halleux added.
Last year proved fruitful for Qatar Airways Cargo, with cargo volumes rising by 10 per cent in 2018 compared to the previous year. Exports jumped by 14 per cent and trans-shipments increased by 12 per cent over the previous year.
