Qatar Airways has played a significant role throughout the pandemic and is committed to helping people and giving back to communities, in alignment with its sustainability programme WeQare, based on the core pillars of sustainability — environment, society, economy and culture.
Since December 2020, Qatar Airways Cargo has transported COVID-19 vaccines to several countries around the world, including Qatar, providing large populations access to these vital vaccines, thanks to the dedication and coordinated efforts of its global teams and ground handling partners.
Globally, the cargo carrier has surpassed a milestone with close to 20 million COVID-19 vaccines transported into 24 different countries, including COVID-19 vaccines for UNICEF as part of the five-year MoU to support UNICEF’s Humanitarian Airfreight Initiative. The largest batch of more than 530,000 Pfizer and Moderna vaccines will be arriving on Sunday from Amsterdam.
Guillaume Halleux, Chief Officer Cargo, said, “We remain committed and resilient in the fight against the pandemic and together with our partners, are ensuring the safe, timely and efficient transportation of these life-saving supplies. I am glad that all our teams have worked so hard to coordinate this milestone transport into Qatar, supporting the country with its COVID-19 immunization campaign in the fight against the pandemic.”
