ANA becomes first Japanese carrier to achieve CEIV Pharma


All Nippon Airways (ANA) has become the first airline in Japan to be awarded the IATA CEIV Pharma certification.

The airline has achieved the accreditation at ANA’s largest cargo operation, at Narita International Airport in Tokyo.

ANA says to provide a higher quality in handling and transporting pharmaceutical products, it implemented numerous enhancements in various areas, such as organizational structure, training, quality management, and handling manual.

These enhancements it explains enabled it to become the first airline in Japan to receive the CEIV Pharma certification.

Last autumn, ANA developed a new product called ‘PRIO IB Fixed Temp’ – a solution for temperature controlled product transportation, and it notes it will continue to strengthen the quality of pharma handling to meet customer’s needs.
