The second frequency commenced recently and operates on Mondays, flying non-stop directly from Dhaka to Luxembourg, said a press release.Guillaume Halleux, Chief Officer Cargo said: “We are delighted to launch the second freighter from Dhaka to Europe. The readymade garment (RMG) industry is a major contributor to the economy of Bangladesh and Europe is one of its largest customers.”
Qatar Airways Cargo is the only airline to offer direct freighter services from Dhaka to Europe. The first frequency from Dhaka to Zaragoza was launched in October 2019.
The direct freighter services offer dedicated cargo capacity of 200 tonnes each week from Dhaka to Europe.
The cargo carrier has an export market share of over 20 percent in Bangladesh. It will soon be introducing its fourth belly-hold cargo flight, starting 15 February 2020, adding an additional 20 tonnes of cargo capacity. In addition to the huge cargo capacity, the fourth belly-hold flight will also benefit passengers travelling to and from Dhaka as it offers passengers with an additional frequency to the country.
