Qatar Airways Cargo deploys emergency convoy
Today, 3 May 2021, 300 t of aid from around the world are consolidated and transported in a three-flight cargo aircraft convoy from Doha directly to destinations in India where it is most needed.
As part of the "WeQare" initiative, Qatar Airways is supporting international efforts to tackle the second Covid-19 surge in India by shipping PPE equipment, oxygen canisters and other essential medical items to the country free of charge from global suppliers.
Group chief executive, His Excellency Akbar Al Baker: "We stand ready to provide humanitarian support by transporting these much-needed supplies. Qatar Airways Cargo has already transported well over 20 million doses of the Covid-19 vaccine for Unicef as part of the five-year MoU to support Unicef’s humanitarian airfreight initiative." (ah)
