IAG Cargo Launches Constant Climate Critical Product for Emergency Pharma Shipments

[ July 27, 2017   //   ]

IAG Cargo announces that Constant Climate shipments are now able to fly under its Critical product, enabling emergency medical shipments to benefit from IAG Cargo’s highest priority service. The new enhancement means that shippers sending urgent pharmaceuticals now have access to the non-off loadable status and performance guarantees offered under Critical.

Less than a year since its launch, Critical has already carried over 2000 emergency shipments for businesses across the world.  While the range of goods moved has been diverse – from pre-launch consumer electronic devices to formula one tyres to factory down machine parts – all have required the “must fly” status guaranteed by Critical.

Following successful trials of Constant Climate Critical across India, the UK and Europe, IAG Cargo is rolling out this new offering across all 109 Constant Climate enabled stations on its network.

It is anticipated that Constant Climate Critical will be popular across key pharmaceutical trade lanes, from manufacturing hubs in India and Europe and into burgeoning pharmaceutical markets such as Latin America. The service offers guaranteed capacity up to the maximum aircraft operating limit, and a dedicated monitoring service through hubs at London Heathrow, Madrid and Dublin. Customers shipping through the carrier’s Heathrow and Madrid hubs will also benefit from a dedicated Critical check-in desk, significantly speeding up drop off and collection times.
