Posted 28 January 2016 · Add Comment

Qatar Cargo's freighter planes will fly between Qatar and Hungary every week on Thursday and Sunday, commencing 3 March 2016.


The Airbus A330-200F, with a payload of 62-68 tonnes, is a unique opportunity for Hungarian industries to reach out to customers globally through the international network of Qatar Cargo. 

The cargo plane will fly from Budapest to Prague en route back to Doha.Qatar Cargo freighter flights will complement the existing cargo operations on Qatar Airways’ commercial daily operations on an A320 aircraft, which this month celebrated five years since the beginning of the direct service between Doha and Budapest.  

Budapest is also an ideal location for distributing high-value products that are flown in from the Arabian Gulf, South-East Asia and the Pacific region, as approximately 20 European countries can be reached within a 1000 km trucking distance from Ferenc Liszt International Airport.  

“We are delighted to welcome Qatar Cargo to Budapest Airport as a regular customer,” said René Droese, property director, Budapest Airport, in charge of cargo development. He added: “This new cargo route will present yet another strong business opportunity for our Hungarian customers in the automotive, digital, electronic, and pharmaceutical industries. I am sure that this new twice-weekly flight will increase the cargo performance of Budapest Airport substantially.”  

“We are delighted to announce our network expansion in Eastern Europe,” said Ulrich Ogiermann, chief officer Cargo for Qatar Airways. “We have identified a definite gap in the market in this region and we look forward to supporting local businesses with a robust service connecting them to our wider global network.”
