At dawn this Friday, a flight from Moscow will arrive in Ezeiza with a record load of vaccines.
This Friday at 4.50 in the morning, 1,141,000 doses of component 1 of the Sputnik V vaccine are expected to arrive at Ezeiza Airport, from Moscow, which will mean the maximum amount that an Aerolineas Argentinas plane could load in an only journey from the start of these flights. A change in the boxes that allows consolidation of a higher volume of doses makes it possible to bring that record amount to our country.
In this way, this week a total of 1,850,085 units will have arrived from Russia.
In addition, with the cargo that the Airbus 330-200 will bring, registration LV-GIF, the country will have almost 27 million doses, within the framework of the immunization campaign against Covid-19 that the national government is deploying.
Flight AR 1603 from Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport is the 28th operation carried out by Aerolineas Argentinas to transport cargo produced by the Gamaleya National Epidemiology and Microbiology Research Center to the country.
