Qatar Airways Cargo has announced it will launch a new freighter route to Dallas/Fort Worth commencing operations on January 19, 2016, increasing its network to six freighter destinations in the Americas. A Qatar Airways Cargo Boeing 777F will fly two times a week to Dallas from Liege.

In total Qatar Airways Cargo provides service to 13 destinations in the Americas, with additional upload provided in the belly hold of the airline’s commercial aircraft.

The new dedicated freighter service to Dallas will increase the 400 tonnes of export cargo capacity per month, currently transported as belly hold cargo on Qatar Airways’ passenger services, to 1,000 tonnes of exports a month. Import capacity into Dallas will increase to a total of 300 tonnes per month.

 “We are delighted to start 2016 with the addition of Dallas/Fort Worth to our network. This is just the beginning of our expansion plans for this year, which will see both our network and our fleet growing in size and strength,” said Ulrich Ogiermann, Qatar Airways chief officer cargo. “The US is a very important market for Qatar Airways Cargo and Dallas/Fort Worth is strategically well placed to give us further reach into the region.”

“We are proud to welcome Qatar Airways Cargo, one of the world’s largest and fastest growing cargo carriers, to Dallas/Fort Worth Airport,” said John Ackerman, executive vice president global strategy and development for Dallas/Fort Worth Airport. “This addition to our air cargo network is a reflection of the strength of the Dallas/Fort Worth market. Cargo and logistics is a strategic priority, and will continue to help our Airport grow and create economic benefits for the Dallas/Fort Worth region.”
