Emirates vaccines top 600 million

[ December 20, 2021   //   ]

Emirates SkyCargo has flown more than 600 million doses of the Covid 19 vaccine since October 2020, from 35 origins to over 80 destinations. Divisional senior vice president, Nabil Sultan, said that that nearly two thirds of them were headed to destinations in Africa, Asia and the Middle East, with North America and Europe the main origin regions.

With the increasing roll-out of vaccination and booster campaigns, the carrier witnessed a steady increase in demand for the vaccines in the second half of 2021. In October and November 2021 alone, it moved more than 200 million doses, almost one third of the total transported by the carrier since the start of the pandemic.
