Qatar Airways Cargo boosts its Pharma Express services to Europe

  09.02.2017    

Qatar Airways Cargo is ramping up the frequencies of its Pharma Express services that it operates from its home hub of Doha to the European pharmaceutical hubs of Basel and Brussels.
An additional weekly frequency, operating on Fridays, was launched on the route out of Basel on February 3. In addition, two extra Airbus A330 freighter services on the Brussels to Doha route will be operated on Wednesdays and Saturdays, starting from February 15.
This means that from February 18 the airline will operate a total of nine Pharma Express flights each week, London's Air Cargo News reported.
Chief officer cargo, Ulrich Ogierman, observed: "Air cargo standards for handling time-and temperature-sensitive commodities such as pharmaceuticals are becoming more stringent, especially with the stricter guidelines on temperature control requirements.
"At Qatar Airways Cargo, we understand the intricacies involved in safeguarding the integrity of temperature-sensitive commodities during shipment. Therefore, we are committed to offering our customers seamless cool chain air logistics as well as uncompromised service standards compliant with Good Distribution Practice (GDP) requirements.
The freight carrier's Pharma Express flights were first launched in 2015. Now connecting the pharmaceutical hubs of Brussels, Basel, Mumbai, Ahmedabad and Hyderabad with the Qatari capital, they fly a total of 30,000 tonnes of pharmaceuticals each year.
All these routes are served by Qatar Airways A330 freighter aircraft, offering between 65 and 68 tonnes of capacity each way.
