Looking back on another busy year as 2021 comes to a close, Qatar Airways Cargo takes a look back at the last 12 months. ‘Navigating change is the new stability’ sums up the experience of the last 12-19 months well, according to American novelist and activist Sharon Weil.
With a strategic focus on development, sustainability, and digitalization, Qatar Airways Cargo has persevered in the face of adversity. We are grateful for the support we have had and continue to get from our loyal customers and staff. We are confident that Qatar Airways Cargo would be unable to meet the numerous challenges and changes that our sector has to offer without your support and guidance. Thank you. Guillaume Halleux, Qatar Airways Cargo’s chief cargo officer, thanks to the company in a corporate letter.
