Dominica: Caribbean Airlines Cargo has uplifted Covid-19 vaccines from Miami to Barbados and Dominica. The vaccines were transported to Barbados by the carrier’s freight service, and the cargo destined for Dominica was then moved to the island by a Caribbean Airlines Cargo charter flight, a service offered by the airline to ship critical supplies throughout the region in the light of global pandemic.
“Caribbean Airlines is well placed to support our region in its efforts to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic. We have successfully delivered Covid-19 vaccines to Barbados, Dominica and Guyana and are committed to continuing the rapid, safe and seamless movement of these important shipments as the Caribbean Islands initiated vaccination programs,” said Marklan Moseley, General Manager – Freight and new affairs, Caribbean Airlines.
The airline recently began freight services in Dominica with Ground Handlers’ appointment as its General Service and Sales Agent (GSSA) and Ground Handling Agent (GHA). Caribbean Airlines also caters cargo services between Barbados and Dominica through its weekly flights between the islands with links to and from countries including but not limited to the United States, Antigua, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, St Vincent and the Grenadines, and Trinidad and Tobago.
Since the onset of the pandemic, Caribbean Airlines Cargo has been supporting the region by shipping humanitarian supplies, personal protective equipment (PPE), Covid-19 test kits, and electronic appliance for online education.
