Did you know 1 out of every 20 COVID-19 vaccines administered globally was transported by Emirates?
Emirates SkyCargo is leading as a top airliner in the global Covid vaccine distribution. One out of every 20 COVID-19 vaccines administered globally was transported by Emirates.
With a dedicated airside cargo hub for the vaccine in Dubai, Emirates has transported over 59 million doses to more than 50 destinations worldwide.
“Every single day counts in the fight against COVID-19 and the sooner that communities can have access to COVID-19 vaccines, the sooner they can curb the spread of the virus and get back on their feet. As a global player flying to more than 130 destinations, Emirates SkyCargo has been committed to the fight against the pandemic from the very early stages and we have rolled out several initiatives to expedite the distribution of COVID-19 vaccines through Dubai, starting with our GDP certified dedicated airside hub. Through our partnership with UNICEF, we will be taking yet another step to prioritize and facilitate the rapid and secure movement of COVID-19 vaccines particularly to communities hard hit by the disease,” Nabil Sultan, Emirates Divisional Senior Vice President, Cargo.
Since February Emirates is working with UNICEF to prioritize the transport of COVID-19 vaccines, essential medicines, medical devices, and other critical supplies to help fight the COVID-19 pandemic.
