Aviation industry joins forces for B747F full Covid aid to India

A Boeing 747 freighter carrying 50 tonnes and 2.5 million worth of Covid relief aid, including oxygen machines, will arrive in New Delhi to support India’s efforts to help victims of the Covid-19 pandemic, thanks to the coordinated efforts of a group of aviation leaders.

The delivery of oxygen concentrators, N95 and KN95 masks and isolation gowns from California’s San Bernardino Airport is being coordinated by the not-for-profit Another Joy Foundation. The full cost of routing the 747-400 freighter via India will be borne by Sky One FZE, a full-service provider for aircraft leasing, charters, and support services, based in Sharjah.

Sky One is an integrated, full-service provider for aircraft leasing, charters, and support services. Founded in 2008, Sky One FZE has grown from a small charter company to a global, multi-dimensional aviation organization. Based in the United Arab Emirates, Sky One serves customers around the globe.

Other industry leaders providing support and services to make the relief flight possible are Boeing, FedEx, Regional One, JetTest, UNICAL, Ascent MRO and San Bernardino Airport, which have joined hands and resources to arrange the airlift of relief aid valued at $2.5m. On arrival in New Delhi, the India Red Cross and SEWA International will distribute the medical supplies to struggling local communities. In total, the charter flight will deliver 5,000 oxygen concentrators, 2 million N95 masks, 2 million isolation gowns, 2 million KN95 masks and 2 million canisters of EPA-approved Covid Killer Wipes to aid medical professionals and those battling the virus.
