Qatar Airways Cargo Strengthens Presence In The USA

Airline Signs Agreement with Air Logistics Group ( ALG )

Calgary, CANADA - Air cargo general sales agent Air Logistics Group (ALG) has entered into an exclusive agreement with Qatar Airways to provide sales, service and support functions for their cargo program in the United States. Under the terms of the agreement, Air Logistics will apply its large sales organization to both expand and diversify Qatar Cargo’s customer base and greatly enhance its commercial presence in The United States.

“There is a small and rarefied group of high quality and fast growing carriers that any GSA would be honored to handle---Qatar leads that group.” stated Henry Miller, Air Logistics USA Country Manager. “Qatar Airways Cargo is an old friend of our company and one we welcome with enthusiasm. Their vision, fast growing route map and dynamic business ethic make for an extremely attractive business partner.” 
Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker said with air cargo volumes originating from the United States accounting for such a large portion of the global market, it is of paramount importance to enhance sales and service representation for Qatar Airways Cargo’s supporters of today and tomorrow.

“We need to ensure that our commitments are constantly met and, where possible, exceeded.
This is the reason behind forging a strong partnership with Air Logistics, to facilitate the continued growth of Qatar Airways Cargo in the United States”, he added.“The United States is one of the world’s key aviation markets and Qatar Airways plans to serve the US with our brand new Airbus A340-600 aircraft, which we took delivery of only this week. As launch customer of the High Gross Weight version of the A340-600, Qatar Airways promises to offer its cargo customers an excellent product from the US to Doha with connections to other parts of the world on Qatar Airways’ growing network.”

The partnership between Air Logistics USA and Qatar Airways Cargo is one that is anticipated to greatly increase Qatar Airways Cargo’s market share leading up to their anticipated entry into the U.S. in 2007. As one of the world’s fastest growing airlines, Qatar Airways is uniquely positioned to combine its modern wide-body fleet, wide ranging destination map and secure and efficient Doha cargo hub to provide unparalleled levels of service.
