In addition to passenger flights, Qatar Airways is now also regularly operating cargo flights to Vienna. Last Friday evening, the first scheduled cargo flight of Qatar Airways Cargo landed at Vienna Airport. The new cargo connection will be operated once a week effective immediately and comprises an important addition for Vienna Airport as an air cargo location. Qatar Airways has been carrying out passenger flights to Vienna since 2003 and was named the “World’s Best Airline” in 2022 for the seventh straight year. Now the airline’s subsidiary “Qatar Airways Cargo” will also regularly operate cargo-only flights to Vienna from its domestic flight hub in Doha starting last Friday.
“Air cargo is an important market segment for Vienna Airport, and we are continually investing in a modern and high-performance infrastructure. In addition to high-quality cargo services, Vienna Airport also offers extensive know-how in this area. We are very pleased with the fact that airlines recognize our competence and with the decision of Qatar Airways Cargo to now offer a regular cargo flight connection to Vienna,” explains Julian Jäger, joint CEO and COO of Vienna Airport.
