CAL Cargo prepares for COVID-19 vaccine distribution

Caribbean Airlines Cargo says it is currently developing a Covid-19 vaccine transportation plan to ensure its readiness to distribute the vaccine throughout the Caribbean.

In a media release CAL said the airline is currently consulting with stakeholders in advance of making preparations for the movement of the vaccine.

During the early phases of the pandemic, CAL said it demonstrated its responsiveness by introducing a cargo charter service for Caribbean countries experiencing limited connectivity as a result of the grounding of passenger flights.

The airline said it partnered with the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Authority in August 2020 to distribute Covid-19 test kits and personal protective equipment to 16 Caribbean countries.
