Air France-KLM and Martinair Cargo has become the first major airline group to successfully pass the IATA CEIV Pharma re-certification process for its hub operations in Amsterdam and Paris, as well as the Air France and KLM airline processes.

After having set the industry standards in February 2016, Air France KLM Martinair Cargo reconfirms its focus on the pharmaceutical business as a top priority for the group, not only investing in its digital transformation but also increasing its quality standards and its cool chain solutions.

Marcel de Nooijer, Executive Vice President of Air France-KLM Martinair Cargo, commented: “Pharma is a top priority for our airline group. In an increasingly demanding environment, this certification reconfirms our commitment to offering the highest possible quality standards in support of our customers’ business activities.”

Enrica Calonghi, Global Head of Pharmaceutical Logistics at Air France-KLM Martinair Cargo, added: “IATA CEIV pharma re-certification confirms that our group aims to position itself not only as a leader in innovation and transparency, but also through putting care into healthcare by continually improving our processes and facilities.”
