EU operates Africa mercy flights

[ June 9, 2020   //   ]

The EU Humanitarian Air Bridge is operating three flights to the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), carrying workers and essential supplies to help the country tackle the coronavirus pandemic. The flights are fully EU funded, and are part of a joint effort between the European Union, Belgium, France, and humanitarian aid organisations, and in cooperation with the DRC authorities. Since the beginning of May, the EU has organised four other flights – three to the Central African Republic and one to São Tomé.
