Qatar Airways Cargo was the official transportation company for Disney's Beauty & the Beast production as it moved from Bucharest in Romania to Doha's Qatar National Convention Centre on board the airline's B747 Freighter this December.

The 70-tonne shipment, which was arranged by Qatar Airways Cargo’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.

“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,” said Mr. Ulrich Ogiermann, Qatar Airways chief officer cargo. “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.”

Hussein Fakhri, TripleTwo CEO said: “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.”
