Air freight brings medical products to Austria
The demand for high-quality medical products - currently mainly FFP2 masks and rapid antigen tests - continues to grow significantly in many European countries due to the new regulations.
To meet this demand, the Diwa Medical Group, in cooperation with Belenos GmbH and Quehenberger Logistics, brings around 2 million masks with a B 777-200 from China to Austria.
Graz Airport was selected as the destination airport.
"We are of course very pleased that the FFP2 masks are transported via Graz Airport and that we can once again show that we handle large-capacity aircraft professionally," explains Wolfgang Grimus, Managing Director of Graz Airport, "air freight handling, that we have been working closely with Swissport for several years, is an important business segment for us. "
"We are happy to be able to demonstrate our know-how in handling cargo planes in Graz", says Andreas Ottendorf, Station Manager of Swissport Cargo Services Graz.
"With our flexible customer solutions and our international network, we can react very quickly to the special requirements of customers and provide short-term transport solutions even in times of limited transport capacities."
As a specialist in international air and sea freight transport, Quehenberger Air + Ocean works closely with importers for pharmaceutical and healthcare products. Charter flights to Central and Eastern Europe have been carried out regularly since the beginning of the Corona crisis. Quehenberger Air + Ocean is currently arranging several flights to Austria for a large medical device retailer.
At Graz Airport, Swissport Cargo Services Graz GmbH, a joint subsidiary of Swissport Cargo Services Austria GmbH and Flughafen Graz Betriebs GmbH, is responsible for the freight center, which is also very important for the Styrian economy.
