For the transportation of COVID-19 vaccines requiring large quantities of dry ice, the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) advise that:
CO2 sensors installed or carried in the aircraft or worn by the pilots and other crewmembers will assist the operator and crew in recognizing hazardous concentrations of CO2 and implementing effective risk controls.
- Pilot training on specific conditions and procedures can improve pilot decision-making in the event of a CO2 detector alert or other system abnormalities.
- To persons conducting operations under Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulation (14 CFR) Parts 121, 125, 129, 135 on safety issues related to the transportation of COVID-19 vaccines by air, which may require larger than typical quantities of dry ice for preservation.
Operators must comply with applicable federal regulations pertaining to the carriage of dangerous goods (49 CFR parts 171-180).
