SpiceXpress, the air cargo arm of SpiceJet, on Wednesday airlifted 1000 oxygen concentrators from Hong Kong to Delhi.
These oxygen concentrators have been ordered by SpiceHealth for emergency use and distribution across India. An oxygen concentrator is a medical device that concentrates oxygen from ambient air.
SpiceHealth, a healthcare company launched by the promoters of SpiceJet, has been working actively with state governments and hospitals across the country to address the issue of acute shortage of oxygen. This is the second big consignment of oxygen concentrators ordered and delivered to SpiceHealth. In the last two weeks, more than 2000 oxygen concentrators have been airlifted by SpiceJet for SpiceHealth, a SpiceJet official here said.
SpiceXpress’s B737 freighter aircraft airlifted the consignment. The oxygen concentrators will reach Delhi via Kolkata.
