AirBridgeCargo Airlines steps into COVID-19 vaccine transportation phase

AirBridgeCargo Airlines, part of Volga-Dnepr Group, has accomplished its first COVID-19 vaccine transportation from Beijing (China). The delivery of CanSino’s Covid-19 vaccine has been orchestrated in partnership with UPS/Marken onboard one of the carrier’s Boeing 747 freighter.

A total of 6,000 doses of the Ad5-nCoV vaccine, weighing almost 400 kg, were safely packed into CRЗDO™ XTREME passive temperature-controlled shipping container, stacked and loaded into standard AKE container and delivered under 2-8C temperature regime. As expected, the vaccines will be part of the clinical trials the manufacturer conducts in various countries across the globe.
