“Emirates Air Cargo” played a vital role in distributing “Covid-19” vaccines from manufacturing sites to many destinations around the world, especially to developing countries, as the Emirates Air Cargo division transported 150 million doses of “Covid-19” vaccines through Dubai. .
The most prominent achievements of Emirates Air Cargo are the transportation of more than 600 tons of the six “Covid-19” vaccines based on Emirates aircraft, equivalent to 150 million doses or 3,500 packages of vaccines, to more than 80 destinations across the six continents of the world.
Emirates SkyCargo is a world leader in the transport of heat-sensitive medicines, including vaccines, and has established the largest air center in the world dedicated to the storage and distribution of medicines approved by the European Union. Even at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, it transported about 200 tons of medicines daily on its planes.
Last January, Emirates Air Cargo cooperated with DP World, the International City for Humanitarian Services and Dubai Airports in launching an initiative to harness Dubai’s strategic strengths as a major global distribution center for “Covid-19” vaccines. And last February, Emirates SkyCargo signed a memorandum of understanding with UNICEF to prioritize the transportation of “Covid-19” vaccines in support of the COVAX Facility, the global initiative aimed at the global distribution of vaccines.
