Qatar Airways Cargo Launches Freighter Service to Yangon

Qatar Airways Cargo has inaugurated a direct freighter service to Yangon, Myanmar.

The Doha-Yangon-Doha route is served once-a-week with the Airbus A330 freighter, providing more than 60 tonnes of cargo capacity each way.

“We are delighted to launch our eighth freighter destination for [this year], in line with our strategic expansion to our network and fleet. Since the country’s liberalisation, Myanmar has had the fastest-growing economy in the ASEAN region, and foreign investment in local trade has seen tremendous growth. We are extremely proud to be the first international airline to serve this emerging market with scheduled freighter service as we aspire to become the premier air cargo service provider in the region,” said Guillaume Halleux, chief officer cargo, Qatar Airways.
