Qatar Airways launches new cargo connection to Munich

The inaugural flight on the new route was welcomed by Alexander Gentes (Head of JETcargo HUB South at DB Schenker 1st from left), Gerold Sellmayer (Head of Air Cargo South at DB Schenker 2nd from left), Bernd H. Foerster (Senior Manager Regional Cargo North Europe at Qatar Airways 1st from right) and Frank Hermann (Regional Cargo Manager Germany, Switzerland, Luxembourg 2nd from right) together with Markus Heinelt (Director Cargo Development at Munich Airport 3rd from right).

Munich Airport has welcomed a further increase in so-called cargo-only services. Qatar Airways is operating regular flights to and from Munich with a cargo version of its Boeing 777.

The routing starts in Bangalore, India, and leads via Qatar’s capital Doha to Munich and then on to Chicago. On the return flight, in exactly the opposite rotation, the freighter reaches Munich every Tuesday. Qatar Airways operates this service on behalf of the international logistics provider DB Schenker. 

Munich’s cargo network will thus be expanded by more significant destinations. This new freight service proves once again that, even in times of pandemic, Munich Airport plays an important role as a reliable part of the infrastructure and a key component of global supply chains.
