Ground handler Havaş receives GDP certification at Istanbul Airport

Ground handler Havaş, a subsidiary of TAV Airports and a member of Groupe ADP, has received EU Good Distribution Practices (GDP) certification for its operations at Istanbul Airport.

The certification confirms the company’s capability of handling and transporting pharma goods — as well as cargo that requires cold storage such as perishables — at the Turkish airport.

Havaş’ general manager S. Mete Erna, commented: “The GDP certificate, which we have been granted for our warehouse in Istanbul, is an indicator that Havaş provides high-quality and safe service at international standards during the cargo operations regarding pharmaceuticals and perishable cargos, which require cold storage.

“At our 10,000 sq m warehouse at Istanbul Airport, we have special, climate-controlled storage rooms and reefer trucks for perishable cargos.

“Focusing on customer satisfaction, we continue our efforts to improve our quality to a higher level.”
