FlyPharma Europe 2023 offered an exciting chance to see Vienna Airport in action! FlyPharma attendees were able to look behind the scenes of the Pharma Handling Center with a site tour on Day 2 of the conference (11 October) – included free with a FlyPharma conference ticket.
The Pharma Handling Center is a state-of-the-art facility that ensures safe and secure temperature-controlled transport, constantly monitored storage and handling of pharmaceutical products. Vienna Airport is the only airport in Central and Eastern Europe that has its own pharmaceutical center with complete end-to-end pharmaceutical service, i.e. also offering handling from aircraft to truck and vice versa from a single source. Other airports have cold rooms, but they store pharmaceuticals mixed with other goods. The Pharma Handling Center at Vienna Airport is GDP-compliant certified.
Equipped with the latest technology, the center is designed to maintain a constant temperature range of 2-8°C and 15-25°C, providing optimal storage conditions. Opening its doors in 2018, and with a 1,600m2 handling area, it offers the ideal solution for companies looking to ship high-value and sensitive products. With its commitment to quality, reliability, and efficiency, the Pharma Handling Center is the preferred choice for pharmaceutical companies operating in Austria and beyond.
