The Last Word: DFW Airport’s Milton De La Paz on How Qartar Cargo Flies In 12 Tons of Fresh-Cut Flowers Each Week

Dallas Fort Worth International Airport worked with Qatar Cargo to launch a special cargo operation last spring to make sure Texans got fresh-cut flowers "that are hours old instead of days." The special cargo flight flies in around 12 tons of fresh-cut flowers from Bogota, Colombia, each week. Once they land, they're raced across the state to florists, distribution centers, and supermarkets.
