A PHARMA corridor has been established between Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) and Brussels Airport for temperature-sensitive medicines, reports London's Air Cargo News.

Pharmacueticals travelling between the two will be handled in strict compliance with the CEIV Pharma standards and carried by CEIV Pharma-certified airlines.
