(19 Mar 2021)
SkyTeam Cargo has launched V Excellence, a dedicated program for shipping COVID19
vaccines.

The program covers the
transport of COVID19 shipments moved under the cargo alliance’s 12 members’ unique
product family: Customized Vaccines – offering special handling and
priority; and Specialized Pharma – the solution for all pharma
shipments.

JD Eum, Senior Vice President and Head of Cargo
Business Division at Korean Air, said, “Korean Air is currently
transporting COVID19 vaccines, including Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines,
and related medical supplies to/from Korea, and will continue to
invest all necessary resources to ensure the safe transport of the
vaccine. We hope to expand the vaccine’s delivery to more regions
by cooperating closely with SkyTeam Cargo members and sharing
networks.”

Most members hold IATA Center of Excellence for Independent Validators
(CEIV) Pharma certification and are experts in the transportation
of pharmaceutical, health care and life science products. This
includes the complex procedures necessary to safely ship certain
vaccines requiring dry ice to maintain ultra-cold temperatures.

SkyTeam Cargo Members Play
Vital Role in Fight Against COVID19

– Aеroflot has carried millions of doses of
COVID19 vaccines to various continents. The Russian flagship
carrier has transported about 50 tons of COVID19 vaccines in
accordance with strict priority rules and conditions.

– Aerolineas Argentinas Cargo has so far
transported 3,374,000 doses of Sputnik V and Sinopharm vaccines
from Russia and China to Argentina and other Latin American
countries.

– For the first time in 86 years, Aeromexico Cargo
chartered a flight to Russia and collected a shipment of vaccines
destined for Mexico. This flight is in addition to other shipments
from Argentina transporting active ingredients to manufacture
around 12 million doses.

– Air France-KLM Cargo has successfully
transported millions of doses of COVID19 vaccines to various
continents. Air France-KLM Cargo’s extensive global cargo network,
expertise, dedicated people and services play a vital role in
successfully shipping COVID19 vaccines with the highest priority
and under the strict conditions required.

– Alitalia Cargo, leveraging its consolidated
experience in shipping pharmaceutical products, has been committed
to supporting the transportation of all medical supplies needed
since the COVID19 emergency started. The airline is now active in
the transportation of COVID19 vaccines working closely with
freight forwarders and leading pharmaceutical companies.

– Delta Cargo has safely delivered almost half a
million vaccines and clinical trial shipments within the U.S. and
across the globe, all with the utmost care and constant monitoring
via its Vaccine Watch Tower.

– Korean Air is transporting COVID19 vaccines and
vaccine ingredients to Asia and Europe and is also one of several
SkyTeam Cargo members working with UNICEF for the global transport
of the COVID19 vaccine.

– Saudia Cargo to date has transported more than
10 tons of both Pfizer & Astra Zeneca vaccines into Saudi Arabia
and is diligently working to exponentially enhance this number in
the coming weeks.

“V Excellence is backed by a vast network reach
combined with years of experience in special handling to guarantee
the safe, reliable transportation of millions of doses of COVID19
vaccines between continents,” said SkyTeam Cargo Chairman and CEO
of Saudia Cargo, Omar Hariri. “Vaccines are vital to tackling the
pandemic and as production ramps up, SkyTeam Cargo members have
the skills and capacity to deliver, facilitating wider access for
populations across the globe thanks to our strong partnerships
with major freight forwarder experts in the pharma industry.”
