Emirates SkyCargo is further strengthening its temperature sensitive pharma and vaccine handling capabilities in Dubai.

This will be achieved with the extension of its fully automated cool room, which has 94 airline pallet positions, at its EU GDP-certified dedicated pharma facility at Dubai International airport.

The extended cool room will provide an additional 2600 square metres of temperature controlled environment (2-25 degrees Celsius) for the storage and handling of vaccines and other pharmaceuticals at Emirates SkyCargo’s purpose built GDP certified facility, reinforcing the carrier’s position as an industry leader for the air transportation of pharmaceuticals and providing additional capacity at its Dubai hub to meet the growing demand for transportation of Covid-19 vaccines. The new extension can hold an estimated 60-90 million doses of Covid-19 vaccines at one time.
