Vimana to offer 1K tons of medical equipment amidst COVID-19 outbreak

In one such move, Vimana Private Jets, has announced rendering its service of utilizing a luxury fleet of aircraft for transporting nearly 1,000 tons of medical equipment to international destinations demanding for medical support during this time of COVID-19 pandemic spread. Moreover, the company has already shipped over 300 tons of medical resources to economies that lack critical means of treatment of coronavirus infected patients.

It has been reported that COVID-19 is not the first emergency that the company has responded to, over the past years, it had also dispatched aircrafts to natural disaster and war areas to transport security staff and medical help with effort on ground.

Although shipments of vivid manufactured and high tech goods have significantly fallen owing to the disrupting global economy given the massive COVID-19 outbreak, carriers are witnessing massive demand for transportation of medical supplies, foodstuffs, e-commerce shipments, and protective equipment as people have been increasingly opting for delivery services. In addition to this, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) has predicted that the global air cargo is oversubscribed by 30 per cent.

Speaking on the matter, the Founder and CEO of Vimana, Ameerh Naran reportedly cited that the company is working closely with government officials in supporting the delivery of medical equipment to regions’ which are currently in dire need of these.
