UIA prepares aircraft to transport vaccines

Ukraine International Airlines (UIA) has prepared aircraft to transport vaccines both to Ukraine and around the world, the airline’s press service reports.

"Since the beginning of 2021 the active stage of vaccination has begun all over the world, which will tend to increase throughout the current year… In order to ensure safe delivery of vaccines, UIA has prepared Boeing 737 and Boeing 767 aircraft to transport the vaccines as cargo," the report reads.

UIA also expressed its readiness to transport the vaccines both to Ukraine and around the world.

In addition, the airline noted that, given the peculiarities of compliance with the required temperature regimes, transportation of the vaccine by air is the fastest and most reliable method of delivery.

As Ukrinform reported, Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal said that negotiations were underway with six manufacturers regarding the supply of a COVID-19 vaccine to Ukraine.
