CAPA Live. Cargo flights vital in distributing covid vaccinations
The question of air cargo – how it has been affected by the pandemic, in what way(s) it has actually benefitted from it, its growing importance (along with e-commerce), and how it can contribute to global vaccination programmes – was discussed during the most recent session of CAPA Live in Dec-2020, during two sessions.

- The cargo segment of the air transport business has always been the bridesmaid where investment was concerned.
- But the pandemic has shown it in a new light, and mass transportation of PPE was undertaken, with that of vaccines now under way.
- Cargo is co-operating with other segments of the industry, with suppliers, and with regulators more than ever before.
- This will stand it in good stead for the future, and it stands to be modernised and digitalised in accordance with its new found role.
