Embraer has released technical information to help operators of its Phenom, Legacy, Praetor, and Lineage business jets safely transport Covid-19 vaccines. In developing this technical guidance, the Brazil-based aircraft manufacturer conducted tests to define characteristics and payload requirements in relation to the technical specifications of vaccine transportation, considering the differences among each aircraft. The transport of many of these vaccines also requires low temperatures, which are achieved using dry ice.

“Embraer is deeply engaged in the fight against Covid-19, providing technical information to customers in many segments, always with the main goal of supporting and enhancing our customers’ operations,” said Embraer v-p of technical services and product support Sérgio Cunha. “This technical information will help customers to develop their procedures to carry a large amount of Covid-19 vaccines.”

In December, Embraer disseminated technical guidance to assist commercial aircraft customers to properly define the transportation characteristics and payload requirements for the Covid-19 vaccines. More recently, Embraer also released guidance to apply UV-C lights for cockpit sanitization, as well as disinfectants and coatings—including MicroShield360 and Bacoban—for aircraft interiors.
