The carrier is planning to rebuild its network to more than 140 destinations including 23 in Africa, 14 in the Americas, 43 in Asia-Pacific, 43 in Europe and 19 in Middle East by the middle of the summer season. It mentioned that many cities will be served with a strong schedule with daily or more frequencies. Qatar Airways Cargo has played a vital role in maintaining a reliable schedule across the network of destinations.

The cargo carrier continues to focus on supporting its customers’ business and enabling global trade, while supporting impacted regions worldwide. Akbar Al Baker, Chief Executive, Qatar Airways Group said in a statement that the airline is proud to lead the recovery of international aviation, implementing the highest standards of bio-safety and hygiene and investing in the latest innovations to simplify travel and restore passenger confidence during the most challenging period in aviation’s history.

He shared that the airline also continue to offer the largest international network, including launching seven new destinations, to provide the connectivity our passengers and cargo customers need.
