Coronavirus: Cuban medical team lands in Guinea


Dubai, UAE-based operator Delta World Charter transported a group of Cuban medical professionals in Conakry, Guinea on an A318-ACJ aircraft earlier this month.

Aziz Ghorbani, general manager of Delta World Charter said, “The aid was sent to support the country in controlling the spread of Covid-19 pandemic. Our team immediately worked on the best options and offered a suitable solution within 3 hours of receiving the inquiry.”

“The air charter business is built on trust and long-lasting relationships. This is critical when it comes to last minute flights. We needed to act quickly in making the right decisions and work with reliable partners to make it happen.

“Despite the Covid-19 restrictions, we secured all necessary permits with the help of the airline’s operations department who worked with us side by side, 24/7 to ensure this critical job gets done in time.”

The medical team arrived in Guinea earlier this month

According to official data, Cuba has sent over 2,600 medical collaborators, divided into 33 brigades to 26 nations to help fight Covid-19.

Delta World Charter operates private jets, air ambulance / medical flights, emergency evacuations, head of state missions and air freight / cargo aircraft charters and short to medium term leases.
