Cebu Pacific, the Philippines’ largest carrier, continues to safely fly COVID-19 vaccines to assist in the country’s distribution programme.
From April 6-9, CEB flew about 77,800 doses to six cities in the Philippines. The carrier flew to Bacolod on April 6, to Zamboanga, Tacloban, and Cotabato on April 7, to Puerto Princesa the next day, and to Tuguegarao on Friday.
CEB delivered around 53,000 doses to Zamboanga and Tuguegarao in March. The week’s batch of consecutive shipments comprises 7,200 doses to Bacolod, 14,400 doses each to Tacloban and Zamboanga, 34,800 doses to Cotabato, 1,000 doses to Puerto Princesa, and 6,000 doses to Tuguegarao.
“We are glad to actively take part in this national endeavour. These deliveries pave way to the timely and successful rollout of our country’s vaccination program, and we are thankful for our partners’ trust in Cebu Pacific,” said Xander Lao, Chief Strategy Officer, Cebu Pacific.
All vaccines upon receipt at the CEB Cargo Warehouse were kept in a refrigerated storage container, complete with cooling systems to ensure that the condition of the vaccines is preserved up until arrival at the designated destinations.
“We look forward to carrying more of these much-needed vaccines to aid in the country’s fight against COVID-19,” added Lao.
To date, CEB has already flown a total of 130,800 doses across the Philippines since March this year.
