We have always stepped up as a “FIRST IN LAST OUT” organisation whenever a disaster has struck the nation. Our aircrafts are the life line of the nation & our nation is grappling with a situation never experienced earlier & this has a widespread impact on the economy. Businesses across sectors and geographies are disrupted due to mobility suspension.
He further added the (FC19-P) is an effective platform to offer a speedy and hassle-free experience, when dispatching & delivering testing kits, reagents, enzymes, medical equipment (ventilators), masks, respirators, surgical masks, gloves and other items, some of which are manufactured by the MSME sector and delivering them to the point of consumption was a challenge for them.
