SpiceJet airlifts 2,450 oxygen concentrators from Nanjing, Hong Kong

SpiceJet has airlifted 2,450 oxygen concentrators from Nanjing and Hong Kong, the airline said in a statement on Tuesday.

A B737 aircraft of the airline lifted oxygen concentrators from Hong Kong and landed at the Delhi airport at 5 am on Tuesday, while a SpiceXpress plane from Nanjing with the equipment will land here in the evening, according to the statement.

India is struggling with the second wave of the coronavirus infection as hospitals in several states are reeling under a severe shortage of drugs, equipment, oxygen and beds.

"SpiceXpress is using its wide-body aircraft to airlift oxygen concentrators from Nanjing which will land in Delhi this evening," the airline said.

SpiceJet has airlifted more than 6,850 oxygen concentrators from the US, Hong Kong, Singapore and China so far in the last two weeks, the statement said.

The concentrators arriving on Tuesday have been ordered by SpiceHealth and other organisations, it said.
