Partners fly face masks to Europe

[ March 31, 2020   //   ]

Worldwide Flight Services (WFS), Airbus and Bolloré Logistics have worked together to distribute two million face masks to health workers in France and Spain battling the coronavirus.

Airbus operated one of its own A330-800 passenger aircraft to Tianjin in China to collect the shipment, returning to Toulouse, where WFS’ cargo handling specialists were ready to quickly offload the cargo and make the necessary preparations for the masks to reach their final destinations. The WFS team broke down the shipment, immediately despatching masks into the healthcare sector in France as well as repalletising and loading the masks destined to help the relief effort in Spain.
From Toulouse, an Airbus A400M carried face masks to Getafe in Spain, completing the operation on 24 March.
