Qatar Airways Cargo has been recognised by the Nepal Freight Forwarders Association (NEFFA) for achieving the highest export tonnage – 2,850 tonnes – out of Nepal in 2020.
An award was presented to Qatar Airways Cargo during the annual Nepal Cargo Day celebration in Kathmandu on 29 July, which was organised by NEFFA.
The awards are held every year by the association to honour the top three carriers for their roles in supporting the country’s exports. Qatar Airways Cargo has secured first position for the highest uplift from Nepal for more than a decade.
“I am proud and humbled to receive the award for highest exports from Nepal,” said Qatar Airways Cargo’s chief officer cargo Guillaume Halleux. “I extend my heartfelt gratitude to all our teams who go above and beyond to support our customers. Their dedication and team work especially during the challenging times of the pandemic last year has been vital. We also appreciate the trust and support of our customers, local authorities and business partners.”
Qatar Airways Cargo currently operates double daily flights to and from Kathmandu for August, offering more than 150 tonnes of cargo capacity each week, each way. Through its hub in Doha, the airline connects Nepal with export destinations in the US, Europe, Australia and Asia.
