  • Cathay Pacific Cargo delivers medical supplies for Indias healthcare emergency

In the face of a grave medical crisis, Cathay Pacific Cargo is flying vital relief shipments to India and it stands ready to do more.

Although passenger flights have been suspended between Hong Kong and India, in the past few weeks Cathay Pacific Cargo has been operating freighters and cargo-only passenger flights, delivering to date more than 100 tonnes of much-needed humanitarian and medical supplies to some of Indias major centres.

These include shipments of specialised oxygen generators, oxygen concentrators and ventilators to Delhi, Mumbai and Hyderabad. In addition, there has been a sharp increase in volumes for shipments of oxygen, surgical masks, sanitiser, personal protective equipment, pharmaceuticals and vaccines over the past few weeks, highlighted a release.
