An operation organized in just a few days to respond to the sanitary crisis in Guadeloupe and Martinique


As a new Covid-19 outbreak hits the French West Indies, the French Government needed a fast and agile transport solution to supply local hospitals with necessary medical equipment: oxygen generators, concentrators and bottles, x-ray equipment, dialysis material, among others.


The Group dedicated an Airbus A330-200F from its fleet to transport the 43 tonnes of equipment between Paris and the French West Indies. After being loaded onboard in the evening of August 28th, it was safely delivered to the islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique on the 29th.
