American Airlines Cargo adds new Heathrow cool facility

American Airlines Cargo has opened a new Controlled Room Temperature (CRT) facility at its London Heathrow (LHR) cargo centre.
The new room is 160 sq m and can accommodate up to 16 times more standard euro skid pallets at one time than the previous room.
It is a fully monitored and alarmed facility, where the standard operating temperature will be set to maintain passive products at +59°F to +77°F (+15°C to +25°C).
Euro Scan software is used to monitor precise temperatures within the facility, which will provide real-time information to the American operations team, and will be used for reporting purposes.
As the second largest carrier from LHR across the Atlantic, American offers up to 20 daily departures to the US, including two daily flights between LHR and Philadelphia (PHL), home to American’s industry leading 25,000 sq ft pharmaceutical facility.
