Qatar Airways Cargo has resumed its freighter services to Bahrain, increasing the weekly cargo capacity to and from Middle East to over 4,500 tonnes.
In addition to the 21 weekly narrowbody passenger flights to Bahrain, the cargo airline launched the three weekly freighter operations on September 01, 2023, which adds more than 200 tonnes of weekly cargo capacity to and from Bahrain.
Liesbeth Oudkerk, senior vice president of cargo sales and network planning said at Qatar Airways, said: “We are glad to be back in Bahrain with dedicated freighters three times a week.
“Bahrain is an important market for us, and having a consistent freighter service will contribute to the economic and trade growth between Qatar and Bahrain.”
Qatar Airways Cargo says the imports into Bahrain predominantly consist of general cargo, perishables like fruits, vegetables and meat, while exports from Bahrain consist of general cargo and dangerous goods.
The capacity to and from Bahrain can be booked online on the cargo carrier’s Digital Lounge platform or via its third-party marketplaces.
