Qatar Airways Cargo recently took delivery of its sixth Boeing 777 freighter. 

 “The delivery of our sixth Boeing 777 freighter is a proud moment for Qatar Airways Cargo,” said Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer, His Excellency, Mr. Akbar Al Baker. 

“It’s the right time to introduce an additional 777 freighter to our fleet. The State of Qatar is growing at a phenomenal pace, as are other parts of the Gulf region, and we are primed to take advantage of this growth,” Mr. Al Baker added.

“As a world-class air cargo service provider with international reach, it is important that we continuously expand both our capacity, and the number of our destinations. Our customers can rely on our extensive network of more than 40 exclusive freighter destinations worldwide, in addition to the freight delivered on our 134 passenger aircraft to 142 key business and leisure destinations globally,” said Qatar Airways Chief Officer Cargo, Mr. Ulrich Ogiermann

“The 777 Freighter has consistently delivered the highest levels of reliability and efficiency since it entered service in 2009, making it the long-range freighter of choice for a number of airlines and cargo operators around the world,” said Marty Bentrott, senior vice president for Sales, Middle East, Russia and Central Asia, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “We are confident that the 777 Freighter’s high capacity and range, combined with the lowest trip cost of any large freighter, will add a tremendous amount of value to Qatar Airways’ expanding air cargo operations.” 

 

The Qatar Airways Cargo B777 freighter has a payload capability of 102 metric tons. The freighter is capable of flying 4,900 nautical miles (9,070 km) with a full payload, making it the world's longest-range twin-engine freighter.

The aircraft accommodates 27 standard pallets (2.5 metre x 3 metre) on the main deck. The industry-standard 3 metre pallets are accommodated by the large main deck cargo door that makes use of the airplane's volume capability. The lower cargo hold has the capacity for 10 pallets, as well as 17.0 cubic meters of additional bulk cargo.

Qatar Airways Cargo recently strengthened its product portfolio with the launch in January 2014 of two new premium services QR Pharma and QR Fresh, that optimise the transportation of time and temperature-sensitive goods, including high-value pharmaceutical products and perishables.

  Recently, new freighter destinations Zaragoza, Hyderabad, London Stansted and Delhi were added to the network. The new cargo route to Mexico, effective from 11 June 2014, marked the start of freighter operations into Latin America.  

On 27 May 2014, Qatar Airways Cargo transferred its entire operations to the new cargo facility at Hamad International Airport. The enormous, state-of-the-art facility, spanning 55,000 square metres, contains a perishables storage area, amongst other key facilities, such as a live animal centre and dangerous goods area. The new self-contained terminal will handle 1.4 million tonnes of cargo per annum.

توقيف 41 شخصا في مظاهرات الجزائر

أعلنت المديرية العامة للأمن الوطني (الشرطة) الجزائرية، مساء الجمعة، توقيف 41 شخصا في مظاهرات شهدتها عدة مدن ضد ترشح الرئيس عبد العزيز بوتفليقة لولاية خامسة في انتخابات 18 أبريل/ نيسان القادم.

وأكدت إدارة الشرطة في بيان اطلعت عليه وكالة الاناضول أن عمليات التوقيف كانت بسبب “الإخلال بالنظام العام والاعتداء على القوة العامة وتحطيم الممتلكات” دون تقديم تفاصيل أكثر حول أماكن توقيف هؤلاء المتظاهرين.

والجمعة، استجاب آلاف المواطنين بعدة محافظات جزائرية، إلى دعوات للتظاهر تم تداولها عبر شبكات التواصل، ضد ترشح بوتفليقة (81 عاما) لولاية خامسة في انتخابات الرئاسة المقررة في 18 أبريل/ نيسان القادم.

واتسمت هذه المظاهرات بالسلمية في أغلب مناطق البلاد باستثناء حدوث مواجهات بين قوات مكافحة الشغب ومتظاهرين بوسط العاصمة خلال محاولتهم السير نحو القصر الرئاسي .

ووفق شهود عيان لجأت قوات الأمن إلى الغاز المسيل للدموع وتوقيف عدة أشخاص بعد تحذيرات للمتظاهرين وتعرضها للرشق بمقذوفات وحجارة قبل أن يتراجع المحتجون ويغادروا المكان.

وصبيحة اليوم نشر ناشطون معلومات عبر شبكات التواصل الاجتماعي حول توقيف عدد من زملائهم قبل بداية المظاهرات بالعاصمة.

وعلقت الرابطة الجزائرية للدفاع عن حقوق الإنسان (مستقلة) على بيان الشرطة بالمطالبة ب”الإفراج الفوري عن الموقوفين وان يتم احترام حق التظاهر سلميا” كما نشرت على صفحتها بموقع “فيسبوك”.
