The award was presented in Kathmandu during the recent annual Nepal Cargo Day celebration organised by NEFFA.
Chief officer cargo at Qatar Airways Cargo, Guillaume Halleux, commented: 'I am proud and humbled to receive the award for highest exports from Nepal. I extend my heartfelt gratitude to all our teams who go above and beyond to support our customers. Their dedication and team work especially during the challenging times of the pandemic last year has been vital.'
Nepal is a key market for the airline and it has been operating flights to its capital city, Kathmandu since 1997. The airline's export market share in 2020 was 45 per cent of the total exports from Nepal while imports constituted 44 per cent.
Qatar Airways Cargo currently operates double daily flights to and from Kathmandu for the month of August, offering more than 150 tonnes of cargo capacity each week, each way. Through its hub in Doha, the airline connects Nepal with important export destinations in the USA, Europe, Australia and Asia, the airline said in a statement.
