Further cooling down in Dubai
Emirates Skycargo is strengthening its temperature sensitive pharma and vaccine handling capabilities at its Dubai hub with the extension of its fully automated cool room with 94 airline pallet positions at its EU GDP certified dedicated pharma facility at DXB.
This will provide an additional 2600 sqm of temperature controlled environment (2-25° C) for the storage and handling of pharmaceuticals, reinforcing the carrier's position as a major player for handling this special cargo and providing additional capacity to meet the growing demand for transportation of Covid-19 vaccines. The extension can hold an estimated 60-90 million doses at one time.
Since late 2020, Emirates Skycargo has transported over 75 million doses of Covid-19 vaccines on more than 250 flights to over 60 destinations. (ah)
