Kolkata: With the launch of the biggest vaccination drive in India in the fight against Covid-19 pandemic, SpiceJet, has taken yet another step forward and signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Adani Ahmedabad International Airport Limited (AAIAL) which operates Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport to provide seamless transportation of Covid-19 vaccine.
