London’s Heathrow Airport is to be repurposed as a “coronavirus hub” with cargo flights increasing medical supply deliveries.

Supplies will include medicines, vaccines, and respirators with half of the UK’s products coming through the airport.

“It was the “first time in a decade” that the airport had the additional capacity, and would use it to “help push vital supplies across the globe to help support frontline teams in the battle against this pandemic. As the UK’s biggest port, we will temporarily increase the number of dedicated cargo flights. These will bring in vital supplies of food and medical equipment to help Britain weather this storm”,
Heathrow CEO John Holland-Kaye said.
