Qatar says farewell to the 747 freighter


Qatar Airways Cargo’s Boeing 747F, registration A7-BGB, landed for the last time in commercial cargo service in Doha on March 1.

A7-BGB joined the Qatar Airways Cargo fleet on 26 September 2017 and over the past seven years, the carrier’s two jumbo freighters were deployed on over 9,000 flights and carried almost 800,000 tonnes of cargo. They were also a stalwart of the pandemic, carrying PPE and other medical equipment across the world, at a time where many other aircraft were grounded.

Qatar Airways Cargo is the launch customer for Boeing’s next generation 777-8F freighter, the most fuel efficient, lowest carbon footprint freighter in the cargo industry, with 34 of the type on firm order with options for 16 more.
