Cathay Pacific gains CEIV Pharma

Cathay Pacific has become the first airline in Hong Kong to be awarded IATA’s CEIV Pharma certification.
Ronald Lam, Cathay Pacific’s director commercial and cargo, said: “Cathay Pacific Cargo adheres to the highest operating standards and this certification highlights our capabilities in handling these precious, time-sensitive and often life-saving shipments.”
CEIV Pharma addresses the air cargo industry’s needs for safety, security, compliance and efficiency in the transportation of pharma products. The certification process seeks to minimise product loss attributed to handling and environmental factors during transport.
Cathay Pacific, with a dedicated freighter fleet, also manages cargo capacity on passenger flights operated by both Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon.
CEIV Pharma is supported by Hong Kong International Airport, which sponsors community-wide certification for organisations in the air cargo supply chain.
Airline group subsidiaries Cathay Pacific Services Ltd (CPSL), which operates the Cathay Pacific Cargo Terminal, and ground handler Hong Kong Airport Services Lid (HAS), have also been awarded CEIV Pharma.
