Qatar Airways Cargo has commenced freighter services to Macau, which becomes its fourth freighter destination in greater China after Guangzhou, Hong Kong and Shanghai.

Further, the carrier has introduced its new transpacific freighter services, providing direct flights over the Pacific from Macau to North America.

The carrier’s Boeing 777 freighter operates twice a week from Doha to Macau. Electronics, garments and e-commerce goods are the major commodities exported out of Macau, while imports consist primarily of consumer goods.

From Macau, the aircraft continues its journey across the Pacific to Los Angeles and Mexico City. On the return leg, the freighter flies over the Atlantic to Liege before arriving at the carrier’s hub in Doha.

Qatar Airways Cargo is one of the world’s leading international air cargo carriers as the freight branch of Qatar Airways, the national carrier of the State of Qatar. The fleet includes two Boeing 747-8 freighters, 15 Boeing 777 freighters and eight Airbus A330 freighters. Last month, the cargo carrier had taken delivery of two brand new Boeing 777 freighter aircraft.
