Ostend-Bruges Airport in Belgium has flown more than 100 tons of relief goods to Istanbul, Turkey following the deadly earthquake that occurred there.

Skyline Air Services and Egyptair Cargo joined forces for these humanitarian flights. The airport ground handling company Aviapartner gave its full support and cooperation for the fast handling of these flights. From Istanbul, the goods will be distributed in the affected regions. The goods on board Egyptair Cargo’s two A330 cargo planes included blankets, clothing, tents, emergency generators and medical equipment.

Eric Dumas, CEO of Ostend-Bruges Airport, said, “Our thoughts are with everyone affected by the recent earthquakes. Ostend-Bruges Airport wants to make its contribution to those in need by doing everything possible to make these humane flights possible. Together with all partners, we, therefore, do this selflessly.”
