Qatar Airways Cargo started operating its second freighter service to Delhi, India from 22 July. This second frequency builds rapidly on the back of the first freighter service from Doha which arrived at Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport on 4 May, this year the carrier said.


“India is a highly important market for Qatar Airways Cargo,” said Qatar Airways chief officer cargo, Ulrich Ogiermann.  “We are delighted to start our second freighter service to Delhi, just two months after launching the first freighter on 4 May. Delhi has one of India’s largest and fastest growing retail industries, and on top of that, it is an important commercial capital for Asia,” added Ogiermann.
