Vaccines – it’s not all about Covid

[ March 11, 2021   //   ]

It’s not only the Covid 19 vaccine that is being flown around the world – other types of vaccine continue to be an important traffic for the world’s carriers. In March, Etihad Cargo and Expolanka Freight (EFL) carried collaborated to carry a 12.5 million Tetanus and Diphtheria vaccine doses from India to Egypt.

EFL handed over the shipment to Etihad Cargo in Mumbai, and the UAE national carrier moved it via its Abu Dhabi hub to Cairo at +2⁰C to +8⁰C.

Etihad Aviation Group’s senior vice president sales and cargo, Martin Drew, said: “This shipment underlines Etihad Cargo’s capability to transport temperature-sensitive cargo across the network and reinforces Etihad Cargo standing as an IATA CEIV Pharma-certified carrier. Working with partners such as EFL, Etihad Cargo leverages a collective of expertise and extensive network capabilities to provide essential logistical solutions to where they are needed most.”
