Qatar Airways has transported over 70,000 tonnes of medical equipment and relief aid since mid-February. The carrier even carried over one million people home, operating a mix of scheduled and charter services plus extra sectors.
With global air freight capacity declining, Qatar Airways Cargo continues to operate a significant cargo schedule with almost 100 flights per day. During the past month, it has worked closely with governments and NGOs to transport medical and aid supplies to impacted regions around the world on both scheduled and charter services, the equivalent of roughly 500 fully loaded B777 freighters. The group’s cargo division is also utilising passenger aircraft to carry freight-only to destinations in China, Europe, India, and the Middle East.
