Bangkok: Low-cost Airline AirAsia has started to deliver frozen breast milk across its domestic Thailand network, free of charge to users registered to Line account @anamaimilk, in strict adherence to all Department regulations.
Head of People and Culture AirAsia Thailand Thiladee Pantumchinda, in a statement, said AirAsia, which has the most domestic routes and regional connections, has resolved to work with the Department of Health in a drive to deliver breast milk across the Kingdom at no charge for this important cause.
There are many current contexts for this service, such as working far from home or attending important engagements that make it inconvenient for mothers to breast feed their children, as well as matters of time and storage that impact the nutritional quality of breast milk when transported.
"The effort has received strong support, even amid the COVID-19 situation and we are very proud of playing a small part in alleviating this cost for mothers and helping children to be able to drink their mother's milk no matter how far they maybe from one another", she said.
She said the airline has many opportunities to work with the Department of Health in transporting breast milk over the past years, starting with the shipments to northeastern region and now the entire nation.
Thiladee added that AirAsia transportation is operated with the highest health standards and great speed.
Anyone who wishes to have their breast milk transported at no cost by AirAsia simply has to register with the Application LINE Account @anamiamilk and review transport routes and schedules using AirAsia Super App.
