In this connection, the Air Force's C-17 and IL-76 aircraft have started their oxygen service across the country. During this time, large oxygen tankers are being airlifted to stations across the country, so that the delivery of oxygen can be expedited. 

The latest statement from the Indian Air Force states that large oxygen tankers have started airlifting at large stations across the country to speed up the delivery of essential oxygen. As part of the operation, the IAF's C-17 and IL-76 aircraft airlifted two empty cryogenic oxygen containers and a IL-76 aircraft airlifted an empty container to West Bengal, the Army said.

It must be noted that, that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had a review meeting of oxygen supply across the country on Thursday. During this time methods and means to increase the availability of oxygen were discussed.
