Qatar Airways Cargo has unveiled plans to open a transit facility for temperature-controlled shipments as well as weekly freighter flights to London Heathrow.

The new Climate Control Centre, a 2,470 square metre airside transit facility for temperature-sensitive cargo, will feature two zones operating for 2- 8C or 15- 25C with capacity to hold a total of 156 ULDs (unit load devices) at a time.

Segregated sections within the facility enable storage of pharmaceutical products in compliance with good distribution practice (GDP) regulations.

To ensure complete temperature integrity, the facility will be equipped with six truck docks, each with inflated curtains and an ante-room as a staging area.
