IAG Cargo eyes pharma industry in Singapore
IAG Cargo will launch A380 service to Changi International Airport beginning Oct. 28.
IAG Cargo said it believes the new service will benefit businesses in the burgeoning pharmaceutical sector, as the air-conditioned hold makes the aircraft suited to IAG Cargo’s temperature control product, Constant Climate.
“With some pharmaceutical shipments valued at millions of pounds, our ability to offer temperature control capabilities between Singapore, Heathrow and beyond is a real competitive advantage,” John Cheetham, regional commercial manager for Asia Pacific and India at IAG Cargo, said. “For customers in Singapore’s important pharmaceutical market, IAG Cargo can now offer unrivalled quality through each and every step of the air cargo journey.”
The pharmaceutical market in Singapore has benefited from high levels of investment and the government’s increased commitment to health care in the region. More than 30 of the world’s leading biomedical sciences companies have set up operations in Singapore.
