KLM, Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport create air bridge for medical supplies between China/Netherlands

KLM has announced it has expanded an air bridge between the Netherlands and China, in cooperation with the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport to get a continuous flow of relief supplies, the company said.

KLM has brought the Boeing 747 combi back into operation for this cargo airlift for the next 6 to 8 weeks. The almost daily flights ensure a continuous flow of medical supplies from China to the Netherlands.

So far, KLM and the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport have already brought 12 million mouth masks, hundreds of thousands of gloves, safety goggles, insulation jackets and hundreds of infusion pumps to the Netherlands.

The air bridge between China and the Netherlands will bring in a continuous stream of protective equipment, and millions of mouth masks are expected.
