Ceva airlifts aid to combat Ebola

Ceva has airlifted more than 70 tonnes of urgent supplies to Monrovia, Liberia to assist in on-going efforts to combat the West Africa Ebola outbreak.

The airlift was chartered by the US Agency for International Development—the lead government agency coordinating US Ebola response efforts—which has been working to expand the pipeline of medical equipment and supplies to the region.

Included in the shipment were infrared thermometers, disinfectant backpack sprayers, tents, and plastic fencing to be used in the construction of Ebola treatment units. The supplies were sourced by USAID from multiple locations around the world and delivered to Ceva Charter Services at Liege Airport in Belgium. There, Ceva loaded the cargo onto a Global Africa Cargo MD-11 freighter aircraft for a direct flight to the Liberian capital of Monrovia.
