Emirates Skypharma Opens At Dubai International Airport
(19 September 2016)


Emirates SkyPharma, Emirates Airline SkyCargo’s new purpose-built facility dedicated exclusively to the timely and secure transport of temperature-sensitive pharmaceutical shipments at Dubai International Airport, was officially opened on Sunday.

H.H. Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman of Dubai Civil Aviation Authority and Chairman of Emirates Group, inaugurated the facility, part of the new 11,000-sqm extension of Emirates SkyCentral terminal at Dubai International Airport, which offers 4,000 sqm of space dedicated to pharmaceutical cargo.

The opening of the new facility, which was directed by Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, will further encourage more companies to connect pharmaceutical markets via Dubai International Airport, a major transportation hub between the East and the West, Sheikh Ahmed said, noting that the UAE is a major hub for the global logistics industry.

SkyPharma also features temperature controlled zones (two to eight degree Celsius and 15- 25 degree Celsius), 88 temperature-controlled individual positions in the automated ULD (aircraft pallet) handling system and five temperature-controlled acceptance and delivery truck docks, the airline said in a press release.

The new Emirates SkyPharma facility at Dubai International airport works in conjunction with Emirates SkyCentral DWC, the carrier’s freighter hub in Dubai World Central which offers 4,600 sqm of dedicated area for pharmaceutical cargo.

"Pharmaceuticals are one of the most important products we transport because of the impact on people’s lives and communities across the world," said Nabil Sultan, Emirates Airline divisional senior vice president, Cargo.

Emirates SkyCargo has also been awarded the certification of compliance under the EU Good Distribution Practice guidelines (GDP) for medicinal products for human use by Bureau Veritas following an audit conducted by the certification agency’s team from Germany.

Emirates SkyCargo is the first cargo airline in the world that has obtained GDP certification for its hub operations covering two airports and the 24/7 bonded trucking service that connects cargo between them. The carrier also operates the largest GDP certified area in the world offering a total area of 8,600 sqm of combined handling space dedicated for pharmaceutical products at Dubai International Airport and Dubai World Central, the airline said.
