Qatar Airways Cargo has received the Global Cargo Airline of the Year award at a ceremony in Johannesburg, as part of Africa's biennial air freight industry trade exhibition and conference, Air Cargo Africa, that took place from 21 to 23 February.

The award is a significant recognition of Qatar Airways Cargo’s success in the air freight industry. The cargo carrier was nominated and voted the Global Cargo Airline of the Year award by STAT Times readers via online voting prior to the awards announcement. Qatar Airways Cargo made the cut with the highest reader votes among the top five nominees in this award category.

Qatar Airways chief officer cargo, Ulrich Ogiermann said: “The ‘Three Rs’ approach - which stands for rates, reliability and relationship - is at the very heart of our business. We are grateful and thankful to our customers who place their trust in our brand and services. Having started off with three freighters in 2003, we have come a long way to reach the number three position on IATA’s international FTK (freight tonne kilometres) ranking today. This award goes out to each and every employee at Qatar Airways Cargo, who strives to ensure we live up to our ‘customer first and service excellence’ motto.”

“Congratulations to Qatar Airways Cargo on this well-deserved win. This victory is testimony to the cargo carrier’s continuous drive and emphasis on delivering the highest levels of service within the air cargo industry,” said R.K. Patra, chairman and founder of STAT Media Group.
