US cargo carrier National Air Cargo has received IATA’s Center of Excellence for Independent Validators (CEIV) Lithium Batteries Certification.

The certification recognises the airline’s safe handling of dangerous goods, specifically Lithium batteries during air transportation. 

“The certification validates National Air Cargo’s adherence to the industry’s best practices and also global experience to airlift all types of complex cargo for governments, international agencies, and industry partners,” said National Air Cargo.

Besides regional hubs in Buffalo, New York, Orlando, Florida and Chicago, Illinois, National has operational hubs in Frankfurt, Amsterdam, Madrid, Dubai, Afghanistan, Djibouti, Bahrain, Kuala Lumpur, Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Shanghai.

Its fleet includes six Boeing 747 freighters, an Airbus A330-200F and a 757-200F.

The IATA CEIV Lithium Battery certification programme includes training, assessment and validation of competence to carry lithium battery products safely.

Last month, Turkish Cargo achieved CEIV certification. 

Earlier in 2023, Qatar Cargo and handler Qatar Aviation Services also gained the certification.
