An Airbus A400M has delivered critically-needed mask supplies to the Spanish health system.
The aircraft, known as MSN56 and operated by an Airbus crew, took off on 23 March from Airbus’ headquarters in Toulouse at 18.07 local time (CET) landing at the Getafe Air Base in Madrid at 19.05 to off-load and deliver the masks to the Spanish Ministry of Defence.
The cargo is part of the approximately 2 million masks transported over the weekend by a test Airbus A330-800 aircraft from Tianjin, China, to Europe.
This air-bridge between Toulouse and Madrid will enable the delivery of a significant supply of masks to the Spanish public health network in support of current COVID19 crisis efforts and comes on top of donations by Airbus in recent days to provide thousands of masks to hospitals and public services around Europe.
Additional flights are planned to take place in the coming days in coordination with national authorities.
