Delta World Charter delivered 5 million face masks and vital personal protective equipment (PPE) to Germany from China on May 12. The charter flight touched down at Frankfurt Airport early Wednesday (May 12) morning.
“The PPE is being distributed to health and social care facilities by NHS amid ‘unprecedented demand’ from the Covid-19 pandemic. The overnight flight was operated by a Boeing 777-200F aircraft arranged by a dedicated cargo team at Delta World Charter.” Satvir Kalsi – director of cargo, Delta World Charter, said.
The coronavirus pandemic compelled the vast majority of commercial aircraft grounded, but Delta World Charter is continuing to operate its air cargo charter services in order to play a part in supporting healthcare workers during this difficult time.
