In order to continue sharing best practices and collaborating on the development of certified pharma lanes, Brussels Airport and MVD Free Airport have signed a memorandum of understanding that formalises their co-operation.

MVD Free airport and Brussels Airport Company are both operators of international airports and members of the Pharma.Aero alliance with similar ambitions regarding overcoming the challenges of global pharma distribution.

The two stations have already worked together on several initiatives, such as the launch of a GDP-compliant route between Brussels and Montevideo to facilitate regional distribution to Brazil, Argentina and the rest of South America via Uruguay.

Said Bruno Guella, Managing Director at MVD Free Airport, said that MVD was happy to be in continuous collaboration with Brussels Airport Company and “very excited for what is to come.”

“It is great to see companies such as MVD Free Airport, who operate in very challenging regional contexts, strive for greatness and help pave the way for a safer, reliable and standardised pharma distribution,” commented Nathan De Valck, Cargo Development Manager at Brussels Airport Company. “When we first started exchanging ideas and information we were very pleasantly surprised to learn we were speaking the same language and that a lot could be accomplished together and also being part of Pharma.Aero as well. Today, we are very satisfied with the road we’ve traveled and looking forward to all that is yet to come.”
