New Delhi: SpiceJet airlines introduced a special livery on Thursday to honour the commitment of frontline staff and corona warriors who helped make this dream a reality as India celebrated the milestone of administering 100 crore Covid-19 immunisation shots. SpiceJet’s three Boeing 737 aircraft are decked out in the livery, which features an image of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and healthcare personnel.
According to a news release released by Spicejet, the special livery was introduced today at an event attended by Minister of Health and Family Welfare Mansukh Mandaviya and Chairman and Managing Director of Spicejet Ajay Singh at Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport.
Ajay Singh, Chairman and Managing Director, SpiceJet said, “I congratulate the Government of India on achieving this incredible feat of administering 100 crore Covid-19 vaccination doses under the leadership of our Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi. The fact that a record 1 billion doses were administered in just 279 days is a testament to the efforts of our health workers and the cooperation of our citizens.”
“The exceptional contribution of our frontline workers and corona warriors including those from SpiceJet and SpiceHealth deserves special mention and should be applauded. Our aircraft livery is a small tribute to the success of India’s vaccination mission and a celebration of its never-say-die spirit,” Singh added. India’s ongoing statewide vaccination campaign has been dubbed the world’s largest and fastest, and the country is one of the few in the world to make its own vaccinations.
Spicejet has played an important role in the fight against Covid-19, carrying record amounts of relief supplies, medicines, and medical equipment during the pandemic, adding to India’s fight against the virus.
“The airline has operated around 26,300 cargo flights since March 2020 and transported around 200,000 tonnes of cargo. Besides, the airline also airlifted close to 90,000 oxygen concentrators and relief material,” the statement added.
