[ April 29, 2021   //   ]

Etihad Cargo has strengthened its ability to transport Covid-19 vaccines around the world after the UAE General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) approved it to carry up to five times more dry ice per flight on its Boeing Dreamliner and 777 fleet. It will allow the airline to provide enhanced frozen and deep-frozen conditions required for various vaccine types, including the Pfizer, Moderna and Sputnik. Air transport of dry ice is strictly controlled under the dangerous goods regulations.
