  • United Airlines Now Reportedly Operating Charter Flights to Pre-Position Doses of Pfizer’s Covid Vaccine

To ensure the vaccines are delivered safely, the airline will be carrying five times of the generally allowed dry ice aboard, since Pfizer's mRNA-based vaccine needs to be stored in as cold of an environment as -70 degrees Celsius (-94 degrees Fahrenheit).

United plans to fly chartered cargo flights between Brussels International Airport and Chicago O'Hare International Airport to support distribution of the vaccine, according to a November 24 letter from the Federal Aviation Administration viewed by The Wall Street Journal.

Pennsylvania's Health Secretary says a COVID-19 vaccine distribution is still on track to start next month.

The FAA said in a statement Friday that it was supporting the "first mass air shipment of a vaccine".

The flights are between Chicago and Brussels, where Pfizer has a vaccine manufacturing facility.

US President Donald Trump earlier announced that the delivery of the coronavirus vaccine developed by Pfizer in partnership with BioNTech will kick off next week. "It's important to remember again that when the vaccine becomes available, it will not be a cure or certainly not an immediate cure or end to the coronavirus pandemic".

Now, even before the US Food and Drug Administration and other government agencies issue approvals, supply chains are being put in place to get each vaccine to communities around the world. Dry ice usually is limited on flights, but United got FAA approval to auto about 15,000 pounds of it for each flight, according to the WSJ report. If approved, inoculations could begin in mid-December.

"It is our job now to rigorously assess these data and the evidence submitted on the vaccine's safety, quality and effectiveness", June Raine, MHRA's chief executive, said in a statement.
