Eti­had Cargo has com­menced a new twice weekly A330 freighter ser­vice to Brus­sels Air­port in Belgium fur­ther strength­en­ing the con­nec­tiv­ity op­tions and eco­nomic ties be­tween Abu Dhabi and Brus­sels, and adding freighter ca­pac­ity to its ex­ist­ing pas­sen­ger ser­vice. The air­line flies a daily pas­sen­ger ser­vice to Brus­sels with its sup­port­ing belly hold cargo, and the ad­di­tion of the freighter un­der­lines Belgium’s im­por­tance to its Euro­pean net­work.

David Kerr, Vice Pres­i­dent, Eti­had Cargo, said, “Brus­sels is an im­por­tant route into Europe with the freight op­er­a­tion re­turn­ing to full strength. Brus­sels pro­vides vi­tal con­nec­tions across Europe and is also a key con­nec­tor into Africa.”

Brus­sels Air­port will fur­ther ben­e­fit Eti­had Cargo’s op­er­a­tions with its ded­i­cated in­fra­struc­ture for the trans­port and han­dling of prod­ucts that re­quire an un­bro­ken cold chain, par­tic­u­larly phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal prod­ucts and per­ish­ables.

Eti­had Cargo launched its own spe­cialised prod­uct for the phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal in­dus­try, Tem­pCheck, in March 2015. Its ser­vice en­sures that all tem­per­a­ture-sen­si­tive phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal prod­ucts in­clud­ing blood plasma, tablets, medicines and anaes­thet­ics are trans­ported in com­pli­ance with in­dus­try and reg­u­la­tory guide­lines.Temp Check in­cor­po­rates the lat­est equip­ment, pro­cesses and oper­at­ing pro­ce­dures to keep all phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal prod­ucts within a tem­per­a­ture con­trolled en­vi­ron­ment at ev­ery stage of the jour­ney. The pro­gramme is su­per­vised by ex­pe­ri­enced Eti­had Cargo teams and sup­port­ing ground han­dling staff.
