On 29 June 2022, a one-of-a-kind Boeing 777 freighter took to the skies from Toulouse and arrived via Oslo at Qatar Airways Cargo’s hub in Doha the next day, bearing a clear message for all staff, partners, and customers: it is thanks to its highly diverse group of employees, united in their dedication and professionalism, that Qatar Airways Cargo is the world’s number one cargo airline, today. The world’s leading cargo airline is truly Moved by People.
The aircraft flew to Toulouse for its bespoke decoration earlier this month and now sports a striking livery showing the faces of a number of Qatar Airways Cargo employees adorned with the words “Moved by People” on each side of the plane. The freighter will serve as the company envoy for Chapter 4 of the WeQare initiative, which focuses on Diversity, and will go on to deliver this message throughout the airline’s global network.
"This Moved by People freighter is dedicated to the 2,873 diverse colleagues who take Qatar Airways Cargo from strength to strength. It is their dedication, innovation, and collaboration that has made Qatar Airways Cargo the world’s number one cargo airline, today. Therefore, they are all mentioned by name inside the word PEOPLE on the livery,” Guillaume Halleux, Chief Officer Cargo at Qatar Airways, underlines. "Our Moved by People freighter will embark on a mission to convey our gratitude and pride in our people to as many of our colleagues around the world as possible. It is a visible reminder that our individual characters, backgrounds, and skills are what constitute our multicultural Qatar Airways Cargo family.”

Chapter 1 - "One Million Kilos" kicked off in July 2020, and provided free transport of 1 million kilos of humanitarian aid and medical equipment to charitable organisations, and with Chapter 2 - "Rewild the Planet", which started in 2021, Qatar Airways Cargo committed to preserving wildlife and endangered animals, and transporting them back to their natural habitat free of charge.
