The world’s largest cargo airline has committed to helping people in need through its 1 Million Kilos campaign.
From July to the end of December charities will be able to use the services of Qatar Airways Cargo to transport humanitarian aid and medical supplies all over the world, free of charge.
Such action is unprecedented in its scale. Qatar Airways is donating 1m kilogrammes of freight to selected customers around the world to give to the charities of their choice. This will allow the movement of medical equipment, humanitarian relief and essential products to where they are most needed, free of charge.
“This action was triggered by the COVID-19 crisis. The pandemic is a tragedy for millions of people, and we looked for ways how we, as an airline, could help those in the greatest difficulty. This solution – shipping 1mi kilos of cargo free of charge – is a firm commitment for QR Cargo. More than just words, we wanted to act and to adopt a comprehensive approach based on actions for the future,” said Guillaume Halleux, Chief Officer Cargo at Qatar Airways.
