Qatar Airways Cargo announced its relief efforts to deliver urgent aid to Kerala following the devastating flooding in the region. The cargo carrier has organised an operation to deliver relief goods to flood-stricken districts including Cochin and Karipur via the airline’s passenger service from Doha to Trivandrum.

Qatar Airways Chief Officer for Cargo Guillaume Halleux, said they received requests from the Indian community in Qatar seeking support to transport relief aid to Southern Kerala, where families and relatives are affected by what may be considered the worst flood in India.

Given the devastating situation, we have rapidly activated a humanitarian operation to offer free transportation of relief goods from Doha to Trivandrum on our daily passenger flight. We are expecting to airlift more than 50 tonnes of much-needed relief goods from the operation, which will commence this Tuesday, 21 August, until next week, 29 August. Our prayers and thoughts are with the victims’ families and we hope the region will quickly recover from the disaster.’

Each donation is permitted up to 100 kg. For shipment booking and enquiries, contact these hotlines: 4018 1685 or 6690 8226.
