Singapore Airlines will make available the cargo space on its aircrafts to prioritise vaccine shipments on key trade routes, reports The Strait Times.

The report also says that the airline will start test flights soon to trial the process.

The airline has kept aside seven Boeing B747-400 freighters ready for coronavirus vaccine transportation and also its passenger aircrafts ready if demand for more flights rises, reports The Business Times.

The carrier is in talks with several vaccine manufacturers and is also working out the details of the planned trial.

While the aviation industry was severely hit by the COVID-19 pandemic, it will also be the crucial industry for vaccine transportation. The International Air Transport Association has described the operation as the “most complex logistical exercise ever”.
