IAF airlifts cryogenic containers from Bangkok

Heavy-duty transport aircraft C-17 Globemaster of the Indian Air Force (IAF) airlifted cryo-containers from Bangkok on Thursday. It was the part of a coordinated operation of the home ministry to tackle the oxygen scarcity in hospitals across the country during the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, officials said.  

India is trying to procure as many cryo-containers as possible from across the globe to reduce congestion in the transportation of oxygen to the states. Cryogenic containers are used to transport liquid oxygen.  

The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) is coordinating the procurement and transportation of cryogenic and other types of cylinders from various countries using the IAF transport aircraft to meet the demand. 

“An IAF C17 Globemaster arrived in Bangkok today to lift cryo-containers. Continuous IAF sorties are being coordinated by MHA to improve transportation of oxygen across the country during the 2nd Covid-19 wave,” it tweeted. 

The country has reported more than 2.03 lakh deaths due to COVID-19 so far with 2.10 crore people affected by the viral disease.
