The Hungary-based GSSA now represents the airline in Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, and Slovenia.
Qatar Airways Cargo operates many full freighter and passenger-to-cargo conversion mini-freighter connections to Budapest (BUD) and Prague (PRG) each week and serves Sofia (SOF), Zagreb (ZAG), Bucharest (BUH), and Belgrade (BEG) with passenger flights.
Bratislava (BTS) and Ljubljana (LJU) will be connected to the network through R-BAG's road feeder service operation.
'Having the world's leading airline represented by the best regional GSSA company is a perfect match in the interests of both companies, however, the number one winner is certainly the customer. Thanks to the strong partnership and strategical thinking, R-BAG will make every effort to boost Qatar Airways Cargo's position in the Central Eastern European markets.' said R-BAG managing director Eva van Baaren-Horvath.
Said Qatar Airways vice president of cargo Europe Rob Veltman: 'R-BAG Group has experienced, dedicated teams in all eight countries, and I look forward to their fresh, positive approach and commitment to pushing Qatar Airways Cargo's business and footprint to the next level.'
