The international cargo carrier will offer twice-weekly freighter services to and from the South American, while Miami will serve as a distribution hub.
"These new destinations will connect the burgeoning import and export markets in the Americas region with the rest of the world," Ulrich Ogiermann, chief officer of Qatar Airways Cargo, said. "Through our expertise in specialized solutions, namely QR Pharma for pharmaceuticals and QR Fresh for perishables, we are able to offer our customers a seamless and an unbroken cool chain for their temperature-sensitive products via our state-of-the-art fully automated hub in Doha."
Among the imports into South America are chemical products, medicines and high-tech commodities. Exports include perishables, pharmaceuticals and fresh flowers.
With the new freight route, Qatar Airways Cargo’s freight destinations in the Americas now total 12, with belly-hold services offered to 13 cities.
