Qatar Airways Cargo has partnered with DSV Global Transportation and Logistics to launch a new bi-weekly freighter flight route from Huntsville, US, increasing access to Europe, Middle East, and beyond.
Named by DSV as the ‘Gateway Star’, twice weekly Boeing 777 freighters will operate from Felipe Ángeles International Airport in Mexico to Huntsville and arriving in Doha via Luxembourg.
The freighters from Huntsville will operate on Thursdays and Sundays every week, offering 200 tonnes of capacity.
Elisabeth Oudkerk, senior vice president of cargo sales and network planning at Qatar Airways Cargo, said: “We are excited by this new partnership with DSV. This strategic initiative not only expands DSV’s market reach, but also establishes a direct scheduled service from Mexico City to Europe, Middle East, and beyond via the strategic hubs of Huntsville, US and Luxembourg.”
Mads Ravn, executive vice president at DSV, expresses his enthusiasm for this milestone achievement: “Our partnership with Qatar Airways Cargo signifies a remarkable leap forward. This new air freight service underscores our unwavering commitment to revolutionising logistics and ushering unparalleled connectivity to our valued clients.
“By collaborating with Qatar Airways Cargo, we not only extend our market presence but also create avenues for seamless access to the Middle East with a keen focus on boosting our oil and gas vertical.”
The major exports from Huntsville that will be carried on Qatar Airways Cargo flights are auto parts for various manufacturers in Europe along with perishables and cars from Mexico.
