Delta World Charter: A plane carrying around 5 million face masks and vital protective equipment (PPE) has landed in Germany after taking off from China on Tuesday, 12May morning. The charter flight touched down at Frankfurt Airport early Wednesday morning. “The PPE is being distributed to health and social care facilities by German Health System 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 said.

The coronavirus pandemic compelled the vast majority of commercial aircraft grounded, but we’re continuing to operate our air cargo charter services in order to play an important part in supporting healthcare workers during this difficult time.

Delta World Charter continues to work closely with its carriers and other partners to offer capacity and/or full charter options. Get in touch with our team by emailing us at cargo@dwc.aero
