November 22. LATAM Airlines Brazil has carried over 160 million COVID vaccines in the domestic market in the last nine months. The Brazilian branch has helped distribute the vaccine throughout the country free of charge, helping the nation resume its commercial activity following months of travel restrictions.
Through its Solidarity Plane program, LATAM has been pretty active throughout South America, transporting the COVID-19 vaccine.
The Solidarity Plane program has existed for the last nine years. It uses LATAM Airlines Group structure, connectivity, and passenger and cargo transport capacity to transport patients who need medical treatment, as well as health professionals, organs, tissues, and stem cells. The COVID-19 pandemic was the perfect opportunity to take this program to the next level.
Throughout Brazil, LATAM has carried 161,659,982 COVID-19 vaccines in 1,990 commercial flights. The carrier is responsible for distributing 60% of all the vaccines in the country. LATAM Cargo handled over six million doses from its hub at Sao Paulo International Airport in the last ten days alone.
