According to the Portuguese diplomatic representation in China, the Airbus A330-941, chartered to TAP, carried a total of 16 tons of medical cargo, which also includes protective suits, between donations and purchases from the Portuguese State, which are intended to equip hospitals to combat the new coronavirus pandemic.

The plane left Beijing early in the morning and landed in Lisbon this morning.

This is the second plane chartered by the Portuguese State to load medical equipment.

Last week, a TAP plane carried 144 fans, respiratory protection masks, visors and protective suits, also destined for the National Health System.
