LATAM transported 200 million vaccines free of charge to South America
The initiative is part of LATAM’s 'Solidarity Plane' program, which provides LATAM’s connectivity and cargo and passenger transport capacity for the benefit of South America.
LATAM Airlines Group exceeded 200 million doses of Covid-19 vaccines transported free of charge within Brazil, Chile, Ecuador and Perú. The initiative is part of LATAM’s 'Solidarity Plane' program, which provides LATAM’s connectivity and cargo and passenger transport capacity for the benefit of South America.
The ‘Solidarity Plane’ program consists of three areas of action: health, environmental and natural disasters. Recently, the program announced new alliances with solidarity organizations and civil societies in Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador and Perú, making the expertise, infrastructure, connectivity and speed of air transport available to the institutions in agreement free of charge through tickets and cargo transfer.
Until September, LATAM Airlines transported 100 million vaccines benefitting South America at zero-cost.
“The dramatic situation of the pandemic made us think about how to help. We decided to make ourselves available, in our role of connecting and transporting, to contribute to the communities where we operate. We have been working to overcome the pandemic for a year and nine months and it is with great pride and thanks to the efforts of all our collaborators that we exceed 200 million vaccines transported free of charge today. We will remain committed and available to support the well-being of the people of South America,” said Roberto Alvo, CEO, LATAM Airlines Group.
