Harald GloyTell us something that we already didn’t know Dept.: “Air cargo operations at Frankfurt Airport are running at full speed during the crisis,” said Harald Gloy, Chairman of the Board of Air Cargo Community Frankfurt e.V. and Board member of Lufthansa Cargo AG. “We moved 3.5 billion respiratory protection masks and other PPE equipment across 22,000 shipments plus medical equipment and pharmaceuticals, as well as urgently required industrial goods, post, packages and food for the German and European markets. Demand for (inbound) cargo capacity (PPE) remains high.” Exports from Germany have fallen by 20 percent since March. That means that the most crucial air cargo is missing. “We are a long way from normal (two-way) flight operations,” said Gloy.
