Cathay Pacific Cargo Delivers Relief Supplies for India from Portland, USA

Recently, Cathay Pacific Cargo has made a further contribution to pandemic relief efforts in India with an airlift of 300,000 COVID-19 testing kits, which were a gift from the State of Oregon. The shipment departed Portland for Mumbai, India via Hong Kong on one of Cathay Pacific Cargo’s Boeing 747 freighters.

Cathay Pacific Cargo, forwarder Expeditors and logistics company Davis Trucking partnered with the Oregon Health Authority and Department of Administrative Services, offering their services free of charge for the shipment.

Cathay Pacific Senior Vice-President, Americas Chris van den Hooven said: “Cathay Pacific is proud to partner with the Port of Portland in the global fight against COVID-19. We have prioritized humanitarian relief efforts over the past year, delivering more than 100 tons of much-needed humanitarian and medical supplies to India.”

The shipment’s BinaxNOW rapid COVID-19 test kits will be delivered to the Desai Foundation, an organization that serves rural communities with health and livelihood programmes focusing on women and children in several states in India. The Foundation will distribute the testing kits, which produce results in 15 minutes, to COVID care and isolation centres, hospitals, and local health workers.

The flight marks the second occasion during the pandemic that Cathay Pacific Cargo has adjusted its air cargo operations to ship essential COVID-19 supplies at no cost to Portland or to Oregon, following a flight last year when Cathay Pacific Cargo carried 1 million surgical masks into the state when they were urgently needed by frontline healthcare workers.

Cathay Pacific Director Cargo Tom Owen added: “I would like to thank our team in the Americas and our local partners for organising this shipment, which is adding to our other efforts in bringing much-needed aid to India.”
