United is the first commercial airline to fly the first FDA-authorised Covid-19 vaccines to the US because of a coordinated effort between cargo, safety, technical operations, flight operations and several other teams. On behalf of Pfizer, United operated five cargo-only flights in early December delivering Covid-19 vaccines from Brussels to Chicago. 

In a statement, the airline has said it is proud to put their expertise to work over the last several months working with logistics and pharmaceutical companies around the world to bring Covid-19 vaccines to the United States.It also said, "The scientists behind these vaccines and the frontline workers are the real heroes and we’ll continue to do our part in the weeks and months ahead to help get this precious cargo where it needs to go."
