Disney production role for Qatar Airways

Qatar Airways Cargo was the official transportation company for Disney’s Beauty & the Beast production.

The carrier moved equipment and sets from Bucharest in Romania to Doha’s Qatar National Convention Centre on board the airline’s Boeing 747 Freighter this month.

The 70-tonne shipment, which was arranged by the carrier’s dedicated charter team, took up the entire capacity of the B747 freighter and included the full production specifications from cables to speakers, scenery and costumes.

Qatar Airways Chief Officer Cargo, Ulrich Ogiermann says: “We are delighted to be in a position to offer our clients turnkey global charter solutions that can be adapted to large-scale shipments such as this production of Disney’s Beauty & the Beast.

“The addition of the B747 Freighter to our fleet earlier this year has increased our ability to offer our customers bespoke and fully-integrated charter options for over-sized industry shipments, and reflects our commitment to future expansion and growth of both our fleet and our network.”

The production was put on in Qatar by Premium Events and the sister company is TripleTwo and its chief executive officer, Hussein Fakhri says: “Staging a large Broadway musical such as Disney’s Beauty & The Beast is always challenging, and Qatar Airways Cargo has done a wonderful job as the official transportation company for this production in Qatar.

“On behalf of Premium Events, the sister company of TripleTwo, I would like to take the opportunity to thank all those involved for helping to make it happen.”
