Caribbean Airlines is preparing for Covid-19 vaccine distribution

Caribbean Airlines Cargo is currently developing a Covid-19 vaccine transportation plan to ensure its readiness to distribute the vaccine throughout the Caribbean. The airline is currently consulting with stakeholders before making preparations for moving the vaccine.

Caribbean Airlines Cargo offers wide global and regional connectivity through its scheduled flights, charter flights and interline arrangements. The carrier can facilitate the transportation of temperature-controlled shipments to the Caribbean from several territories worldwide including Europe, India and the United States. It covers the whole of the Caribbean including but not limited to: Trinidad and Tobago, Antigua, Barbados, Guyana, Grenada, Jamaica, Bahamas and St. Maarten.

“Caribbean Airlines Cargo is firmly committed to serving the region. Our cargo operations continue to support the Caribbean, supplying critical cargo and ensuring the movement of goods into and out of the region ”, said Marklan Moseley, General Manager – Cargo and New Business, Caribbean Airlines.

In the early stages of the pandemic, Caribbean Airlines Cargo demonstrated its responsiveness by introducing a cargo charter service for Caribbean countries experiencing limited connectivity as a result of grounded passenger flights.

The airline also worked in partnership with the Caribbean Disaster Management Authority (CDEMA) in August 2020 to distribute Covid-19 test kits and personal protective equipment (PPE) to 16 Caribbean countries.

“We look forward to playing a pivotal role in the recovery of our region through the safe and efficient removal of the Covid-19 vaccine.” said Mr. Moseley.
