Iberia Group and Vueling teams save lives
The IAG group is the main partner of Spain’s National Transplant Organisation (ONT), carrying out more than 87% of its commercial air transfers. The three airlines -Iberia, Iberia Express, and Vueling- work with the ONT to make sure that organs arrive on time and save lives.
In 2021, the ONT transported 978 organs for transplantation by plane, on private and regular flights. Of these, 23.8% were operated by commercial airlines.
In their altruistic collaboration with the ONT, the Iberia Group airlines - Iberia, Iberia Express, and Iberia Regional Air Nostrum - shipped 81 organs, and Vueling carried another 74, making the IAG group the ONT’s main partner in Spain, where it transports more than 87% of all donor organs. (cj)
