“Today, we have transported the 100 millionth dose of Covid vaccine for free. We will remain committed to making our connectivity available for the benefit of the lives and health of the people of South America.”
Latam’s Solidarity Plane programme, which has been running for more than a decade, has so far transported 2,400 health professionals and patients with urgent medical needs, as well as 770 tonnes of cargo including medical supplies and vaccines.
