For the purpose of certification of its competence to carry lithium battery products safely, Turkish Cargo, the air cargo brand of Turkish Airlines, joined the ‘CEIV Lithium Battery’ certification program, established by the International Air Transport Association (IATA). Participation of the Carrier in the certification program, which consists of the training, assessment and validation processes, became formalized at the signing ceremony held during the symposium.

Thus, participation in the CEIV Li-batt certification program, which is globally accepted as one of the highest standards, is a great source of pride to us. Such a new certification program underlines the adherence of Turkish Cargo to the high-quality standards and its commitment to provide safe, fast and secure air cargo service to our customers, once again.”

Brendan Sullivan, the Global Head of Cargo at the International Air Transport Association (IATA), remarked; “The European freight market is one of the largest in the world, accounting for close to a quarter of total global trade. Having Turkish Airlines, one of Europe’s largest cargo carriers achieve CEIV Li-batt certification is a significant boost for meeting shippers’ expectations in terms of the safe transport of goods containing lithium batteries.”

Developed for the purpose of performance of global air cargo operations at a high standard, the CEIV Li-batt certification program is designed to improve the safety during the handling and shipment of the lithium batteries throughout the supply chain.
