July 13, 2020: Qatar Airways Cargo will be moving 1 million kilogram humanitarian aid and medical supplies all over the world from July to the end of December 2020 free of charge.

This is the first chapter in a sustainability project called We Qare. Built on the four fundamental pillars of sustainability (economy, environment, society and culture). We Qare is a series of concrete air cargo actions designed to create a positive impact on the industry and the world.

Qatar Airways is donating 1 million kilos 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.

Guillaume Halleux, Chief Officer Cargo at Qatar Airways, said, “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 1 million kilogram 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.”
