“During the global spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, which resulted in panic, fear and hopelessness in the industry; we have demonstrated resilience, agility and speed of decision-making and special competency in fast redeployment of organizational resources to our cargo division to airlift life-saving COVID-19 PPE and medical supplies.
