AirAsia’s Teleport ready to deliver COVID-19 vaccines

Leveraging on AirAsia’s largest network in Southeast Asia covering 125 cities, Teleport, the logistics venture of AirAsia Digital is ready to focusing its operations to support the distribution of COVID-19 vaccines in the region.

Since the start of the pandemic early this year, Teleport was among the first to charter cargo-only flights to deliver medical aid and protective equipment to hospitals and frontliners in major cities even when international borders were closed for travellers and AirAsia’s flight went into hibernation.

Teleport CEO Pete Chareonwongsak said, “Distributing vaccines is a global imperative that can bring back a global economic recovery as well as the revival of demand in the aviation and travel industry.

That’s why we’re focused on putting together our collective resources, technology and infrastructure for regional supply chains and essential services. We will work closely with the governments and our partners to ensure that the vaccines reach our healthcare frontliners who are braving the pandemic.”
