January: Distribution of Covid-19 vaccines

Emirates SkyCargo has maintained an unwavering focus on supporting communities, especially those in developing markets, with rapid access to Covid-19 vaccines and other medical supplies. To this end, in January 2021, it partnered with leading Dubai-based entities, DP World, International Humanitarian City and Dubai Airports, to form the Dubai Vaccine Logistics Alliance to expedite global vaccine distribution through Dubai.

A MoU with UNICEF in February 2021 to prioritise delivery of Covid-19 vaccines

Emirates SkyCargo also signed a MoU with UNICEF in February 2021 to prioritise delivery of Covid-19 vaccines and related supplies in support of the COVAX initiative for equitable distribution of Covid-19 vaccines.

With its expertise in transporting temperature sensitive pharmaceuticals and with its wide-body capacity and extensive global network, Emirates SkyCargo played an important role in the international movement of Covid-19 vaccines.
