Cargo Air Charter

Medical equipment delivered to Equatorial Guinea on air cargo charter

Chapman Freeborn Germany’s team recently worked in partnership with colleagues in Istanbul to successfully complete a time-critical cargo charter. The operation involved the delivery of medical equipment for the opening of a new hospital in Mongomo, Equatorial Guinea.

The 38-ton consignment of medicines, technical equipment and beds was flown from Tel Aviv to Malabo on an Airbus A310-300F operated by ULS Airlines Cargo.

In order to meet the tight deadline, the aircraft was positioned in Tel Aviv the day before the charter and loaded during the night ahead of a 0630 departure to West Africa.

Following a short fuel stop in Cairo the aircraft arrived on schedule in Malabo, the capital of Equatorial Guinea, located on the northern coast of Bioko Island.

From Malabo, the cargo was shuttled 350km east to the final destination of Mongomo on the mainland with the help of a Mi-26 heavy transport helicopter.

The Polyclinic Medical Center – Our Lady of Guadalupe, was formally opened by the country’s president in March and will support the government’s efforts to enhance public health by providing improved medical services.

Bettina Kaufmann, General Manager of Chapman Freeborn Germany, said:

“The success of this project is down to the close coordination and commitment of all of the parties involved. We are proud that we were able to make a contribution to the opening of the hospital in Mongomo on schedule.”

“This time-critical charter operation drew on our 40 years of experience and highlights the benefits of our global network, as well as our close relationships with airline suppliers and airport authorities.”
