Gulf Air imports over 80 tons of medical supplies in May

In response to national COVID-19 mitigation efforts, Gulf Air, the national carrier of Bahrain, has successfully imported 82 tons of medical supplies from India with partner medical suppliers.

Throughout the month of May, the airline has operated four cargo flights from and to different cities in India, carrying back medications, medical equipment and hygienic products. Additionally, on 27 May, it operated a historic first in-a-series of cargo flights to Guangzhou, China, importing 21 tons of medical supplies in which the airline has utilised all compartments of its aircraft to maximise storage space.

The carrier is working alongside members of Team Bahrain to ensure sufficient availability of medical supplies during these unprecedented times. During April, it also operated six flights to import 90 tons of medical supplies from India.
