Operation Fly Formula, the President Biden administration’s effort to combat dwindling baby formula supplies in the U.S., is utilizing transportation infrastructure from United to bring over 300,000 pounds of Kendamil formula from Europe, according to a White House press statement. The operation will formally begin on June 9, and will be made available to the public as it rolls in.
“United Airlines has agreed to transport Kendamil formula free of charge from Heathrow Airport in London to multiple airports across the country over a three-week period. These are the first Operation Formula Flight to be donated by an airline carrier,” the White House announced Wednesday.
Kendal Nutricare, the manufacturer of the formula, will be shipping over 2 million cans of the baby formula to the states in order to relieve shortages nationwide.
