Oxygen Concentrators arrive at CSMIA from Singapore

As India receives global support to combat the second wave of Covid-19, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSMIA) facilitated the arrival of 256 Oxygen Concentrators from Singapore weighing approximately 5.5 tones. Transported via Singapore Airlines, the first shipment landed in Mumbai on April 27th and the second on 28th carrying 128 oxygen concentrators each. The offloading of these shipments was given topmost priority and the entire process was completed in a span of 15 minutes.

The recent spike in cases has led to an increase in demand for oxygen across the country. As the name suggests, oxygen concentrators are devices that concentrate oxygen from ambient air. These are particularly helpful for patients who are isolating at home as well as for meeting the demands of hospitals running low on oxygen.

In the wake of the pandemic, the team at CSMIA has been relentlessly operating the cargo handling activities to cater to the greater need to mobilize and supply essential life-saving commodities across India and the world. A veteran in the movement of pharmaceutical goods, CSMIA has a well-defined process for the faster turnaround of the essential medical goods and transshipment movements. The air cargo is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and CSMIA’s prior experience in the transportation of essential medical goods across the world enables the airport to extend its support during these challenging times.
