Cargo flights bring masks to Austria

The first of two cargo flights carrying the important medical cargo from China landed on 10 February.

High-quality medical products, in particular FFP2 masks and antigen rapid tests, are currently in high demand in many European countries due to new regulations.

To meet this demand, Diwa Medical, in cooperation with Belenos GmbH and the logistics company Quehenberger as well as Sky Cargo Solutions, is bringing around 2 million masks from China to Austria on a B 777 200. Graz Airport was chosen as the destination airport, which will once again be able to demonstrate its professional handling of a wide-body aircraft.

Cargo is an important business segment

Swissport Cargo Services Graz GmbH, a joint subsidiary of Swissport Cargo Services Austria GmbH and Flughafen Graz Betriebs GmbH, is responsible for the cargo centre at Graz Airport, which is also of great importance for the Styrian economy.
