Turkish Cargo has become the first cargo airline to achieve all three of IATA’s CEIV certifications: Pharma, Fresh, and Live Animals.

The certifications, which are valid for a three-year period, reflect Turkish Cargo’s capability of handling pharmaceutical cargo, perishables and live animals at its facilities and on its flights, to IATA’s standards.

Glyn Hughes, global head of cargo at IATA, commented: “Turkish Cargo deserves to be praised for becoming not only the world’s first air cargo airline to concurrently hold all three CEIV certificates, but also the first air cargo airline in Europe to have obtained the CEIV Live Animals certificate.”

Turhan Ozen, chief cargo officer of Turkish Airlines, added: “We are very proud of our IATA CEIV certificates, which prove that we meet the international standards at our special cargo operations, during such a vulnerable and critical period.”
