Guillaume Halleux, Chief Officer Cargo at Qatar Airways Cargo, commented: “Qatar Airways Cargo is implementing its meticulous Next Generation approach throughout its network, aiming for optimum resource deployment in alignment with customer requirements.
“Our network planning team saw a perfect opportunity in the passenger A330 flight’s ground-time in Phuket and has worked hard to establish a well-scheduled, interim passenger-freighter connection to Penang and back to maximize the cargo capacity into and out of Malaysia’s second-busiest cargo airport.
“This Next Generation-style multi-modal strategy sees Qatar Airways’ Doha-Phuket passenger connection becoming a Phuket-Penang-Phuket passenger-freighter for four days of the week, before returning to Doha again as a passenger service with lower deck cargo.”
“The re-launch of our Penang connections in an innovative and unique manner illustrates our ambition and ability, at Qatar Airways Cargo, to provide connectivity to our customers in the best possible way.
With the exception of mail, the destination is open for all commodity types. Penang is the largest export-contributing state within Malaysia, with mostly electronics and electrical equipment, general cargo, and vulnerable cargo being sent by air.
