Turkish Cargo joins CEIV Lithium-Battery program

Turkish Cargo , the air cargo brand of Turkish Airlines, joined the ‘CEIV Lithium Battery’ certification program, set up by IATA. Participation of the carrier in the certification, which comprises training, assessment, and validation processes, was formalized at the signing ceremony held during the symposium. Turkish Airlines CEO Bilal Ekşi said, “As a global air cargo brand, we are committed to maintaining the supply chain for the lithium battery products and fulfilling our responsibilities in this regard. 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 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, Global Head, Cargo, IATA said, “The European freight market is the largest in the world. It accounts for close to a quarter of total global trade. Having Turkish Airlines achieve CEIV Li-batt certification is a boost for meeting shippers’ expectations in terms of the safe transport of goods containing lithium batteries.”
