Qatar Airways Cargo’s First Charter Freighter Arrives in Columbus, Ohio

Qatar Airways Cargo shipped over 100 tonnes of garments in collaboration with one of its major customers, EFL (Expo Freight), headquartered in Colombo, Sri Lanka, early this month.
The garments were flown on a Boeing 777 freighter from Colombo to Rickenbacker International Airport in Colombus, Ohio for L Brands, the American fashion retailer based in Ohio. L Brands, formerly known as Limited Brands, is featured on the Fortune 500 list of companies.
The Boeing 777 freighter shipment marks Qatar Airways Cargo’s first charter service to Rickenbacker International Airport in Columbus, Ohio and demonstrates how the carrier’s world-wide network opens global connection opportunities for other businesses in the region.
Qatar Airways Chief Officer Cargo, Mr. Ulrich Ogiermann said, “We appreciate the trust that EFL has placed in us to deliver this special air charter. Our extensive cargo network, young and modern fleet of 20 freighters and our expertise in freight charters are the competitive advantages that enable us to customise our connectivity and services to most of the airports in the world. With the current five times daily belly flights and twice weekly Airbus A330 freighters to and from Colombo, Sri Lanka, apparel and local industries in the country are offered more capacity, including quick and efficient connections to key trade markets in Europe and the Americas via our Doha hub.”
Mr. Hanif Yusoof, Founder and Chairman at EFL said, “As a customer centric company, we are honoured to have collaborated with Qatar Airways Cargo on this special charter service for L Brands. This serves as a great example of logistic providers and airlines working together to tailor solutions that benefit supply chain customers. We look forward to increasing our engagement with carriers and
customers, developing more customized solutions that are both timely and effective.”
Mr. Irshad Razack, Head, Global Air Freight continued, “We would like to thank Qatar Airways Cargo team for arranging the first-ever charter to Rickenbacker International Airport (LCK), Ohio. The longstanding mutual relationship between both stakeholders closer to a decade has paved the way to achieve this milestone.”
