Amerijet International became the first US all-cargo airline to earn IATA’s CEIV Pharma certification on June 27.

Amerijet transports over 136 million kilogrammes of freight per year, including 30 million kilogrammes of temperature-sensitive products. The carrier’s temperature-controlled handling facility at Miami airport includes a custom-built cooling facility and can cater to various temperature requirements, including ambient, chilled and frozen shipments.

Having invested heavily in technology, infrastructure and processes over the last few years, the new certification serves to highlight Amerijet’s commitment to meeting the high standards set by the pharmaceutical industry.

Vic Karjian, President and CEO of Amerijet International Airlines, commented on the achievement.
“This certification reconfirms our commitment to offering the highest consistent quality, professionalism and transparency to our customers,” he said, adding that the accreditation is the result of the hard work and investments made over the last few years to the airline’s Temperature Controlled programme.

Glyn Hughes, IATA Global Head of Cargo, congratulated Amerijet for its achievement in meeting shippers’ expectations in terms of standardisation and transparency. “This will contribute towards developing a stronger, more competitive and enhanced air cargo service for pharmaceuticals in North and Latin America for this vital sector,” he concluded.
