Qatar Airways Cargo has commenced direct freighter service to Yangon, offering additional capacity to support Myanmar’s exports, primarily of garments. The Doha-Yangon-Doha route is served once a week with the Airbus A330 freighter, providing more than 60 tonnes of cargo capacity. Garments destined for Europe and US markets will get a stopover at Doha.

The new service will also facilitate the transit of pharmaceutical imports from Europe to Myanmar through its established QR Pharma solution, according to a press release from the airlines.

“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,” Qatar Airways’ acting chief officer cargo Guillaume Halleux said.

Myanmar’s air freight exports and imports have risen by 87 per cent and 58 per cent in metric tonnes since 2014. (DS)
