Carried by wide-body and modern Airbus A350 free-of-charge, the batch comprises ventilators, protective suits, gloves, safety glasses and N95 masks which are necessary for hospitals and medical establishments in the fight against COVID-19 pandemic.

They were promptly sent to hospitals to strengthen resources for the effort.
