Emirates transports 59mn doses of corona vaccines

Emirates SkyCargo has moved around 59 million doses of Covid-19 vaccines to more than 50 destinations around the world.

It has also transported six different types of Covid-19 vaccines on its flights, said a press release.

The air freight division of Emirates has been leading the international air cargo industry in the transportation of Covid-19 vaccines and other essential pharmaceutical, PPE and food supplies during the pandemic.

Emirates SkyCargo has a dedicated GDP certified facility at its hub in Dubai used for storing and transporting Covid-19 vaccines from manufacturing locations to a destination network spanning six continents.

Emirates SkyCargo has been able to safely and rapidly deliver around 5 percent of the total Covid-19 vaccines administered around the world since October 2020.

In January 2021, Emirates SkyCargo joined hands with DP World, Dubai Airports and International Humanitarian City to form the Dubai Vaccine Logistics Alliance. The Alliance partners work together to facilitate the rapid transport of Covid-19 vaccines and related medical supplies through Dubai to developing countries.
