The Indian Air Force (IAF) has coordinated its resources to cater to the “surge operations” in view of the Covid pandemic. This will include manpower, ground handling, loading equipment and vehicles such as trailers and fork lifters.
The IAF has been operating the Covid Air Support Management Cell (CASMC) at the Palam air base since April 27. The cell is tasked with coordinating distribution of the relief aid from foreign countries.
The cell is operating round the clock. One C-130 and two AN-32 transport aircraft are operating at Palam to airlift load on short notice across the country.
