Indian DGCA Issues Guidelines for COVID-19 Vaccine Transport

MIAMI – The Indian Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has issued guidelines for COVID-19 vaccine transport by air using dry ice.

Classified as “dangerous goods” by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), dry ice can transform into carbon dioxide at temperatures higher than -78 degrees Celsius.

The DGCA has stipulated that all “operators while engaging in transportation of COVID-19 vaccines packed with dry ice shall establish the maximum quantity of dry ice that can be loaded in a given cargo hold or in the main deck (passenger cabin) when a passenger version is deployed for all cargo operations.”
