Spicejet has tied up with Adani Ahmedabad International Airport Limited (AAIAL) which operates Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport, for Covid-19 vaccine delivery.
As a part of this collaboration, AAIAL will handle the acceptance, warehousing of vaccines, and provide a temperature-controlled facility, plug points in the warehouse and airside and maintain the cold chain from acceptance to the airside and vice versa.
Likewise, Spicejet’s cargo arm, Spicexpress, will offer rapid and secure transportation of the Covid-19 vaccine in India and international markets with the proper temperature-controlled mechanism under the MoU.
Ajay Singh, chairman, and managing director, Spicejet said:
“The success of the biggest vaccination drive largely depends upon the transport, storage, and distribution of vaccines to every part of the world without any major challenges.
“At Spicejet, we are ensuring no stones are left unturned in making this drive a remarkable success and our latest tie-up with Adani Ahmedabad International Airport Limited is another step in that direction that would help in the seamless transportation of the Covid-19 vaccine.”
Behnad Zandi, CEO – Adani Airport Group said:
“We are humbled to be part of this vaccination drive by utilising our core competencies in the logistics sector and infusing innovative solutions as cargo terminal operators at SVPI Airport. We are committed to ensuring seamless transportation of vaccines through our terminal.”
