Qatar Airways takes delivery of 12th B777 freighter


Qatar Airways Cargo announced that it has received its latest Boeing 777 freighter in Doha (Qatar) on the 19th of March 2017, taking its total freighter fleet count to 21.

Ulrich Ogiermann, Qatar Airways’ Chief Officer Cargo said: “The arrival of our newest Boeing 777 freighter comes at a time when we are consciously strategising our freighter network expansion this year, above and beyond the unprecedented demand and growth in our charter services. Through our expanding fleet of 21 freighters, we offer increased capacity and flexibility to our customers, providing them access to any major air trade markets across the world.”

According to Qatar Airways Cargo, the Boeing 777 freighter has the longest range of any twin-engined freighter and is based around the B777- 200 Long Range aircraft operating on the airline’s ultra long-haul routes. With a payload capacity of 102 metric tonnes, the B777F is capable of flying 9,070 km.
