Lufthansa opens Hyderabad pharma hub

LUFTHANSA Cargo’s temperature-sensitive airfreight pharma hub went into operation today at Hyderabad Airport (India).

The first temperature-sensitive medicines were transported to Philadelphia and Chicago (US) via Frankfurt (Germany) aboard an MD-11.

“With the certification of the key stations for cold-chain transport in our network we are strengthening our commitment to transporting temperature-sensitive shipments,” Christopher Dehio, senior manager global key accounts temperature control at Lufthansa Cargo, said.

Lufthansa Cargo is also expanding its fleet of cold-chain containers in Hyderabad. The cargo airline is working with the operator of Hyderabad Airport, the GMR Group, to jointly develop the airport into the key pharma hub.
