Qatar Airways Cargo will launch a new freighter route connecting Dallas/Fort Worth to its global cargo network starting on January 19, 2016, the company said.
Qatar Airways Cargo will utilize Boeing 777F freighter aircraft to fly the route two times per week from DFW to Liege, Belgium.
With the arrival of Qatar Airways Cargo, DFW will have 18 air cargo carriers serving the Airport with flights to major cargo hubs worldwide.

Qatar Airways Cargo will also be able to connect shippers from the DFW catchment area to more than 150 destinations on the carrier´s global network.

Centered between its owner cities of Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas, DFW Airport also serves as a major economic generator for the North Texas region, producing over USD 37 billion in economic impact each year by connecting people through business and leisure travel.
