Qatar Airways Cargo and the Qatar Development Bank have introduced an initiative to support local perfume manufacturers in the State of Qatar.

The cargo carrier is offering discounted rates to local Qatari perfume manufacturers to export to international markets. Through this initiative, the airline will help boost exports and sales of locally manufactured perfumes to international markets and provide opportunities for Qatari exporters to expand their business activities through business to consumer channels.

Local manufacturers, through the airline’s approved network of courier companies, will have access to Qatar Airways’ extensive global network and modern fleet to transport their products. Qatar Airways' Chief Officer Cargo, Guillaume Halleux, said: “We are pleased to support the growth and success of local exporters and help diversify the economy of the State of Qatar. Being a leading cargo carrier, we are well placed to help businesses in Qatar export their products to an international market utilising our state-of-the-art and modern fleet.”
