Qatar Cargo appoints new GSSA for Central Europe

Qatar Airways Cargo has appointed R-BAG Group as its GSSA in eight Central Eastern Europe (CEE) countries.

The Hungary-based GSSA now represents the airline in: Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, and Slovenia.

Qatar Airways Cargo operates several 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, run by subcontractor Airline Support International.

Eva van Baaren-Horvath, group managing director of R-BAG Group, said:

– 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.
