The Philippine Air Force’s fleet of Lockheed C-130 "Hercules" cargo planes transported 89,775.36 kilograms of government-procured personal protective equipment (PPE) sets from March 31 to April 19.

This is in support of the Bayanihan to Heal as One Act in response to the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) pandemic, Air Force spokesperson Maj. Aristides Galang said in a statement late Sunday.

"From March 31 to April 19, 2020, PAF C-130(s) have transported a total of 89,755.36 (kilograms) of government-procured PPE from Xiamen International Airport in China to Villamor Air Base in Pasay City. The following PPE were composed of sterile and disposable protective suits, medical goggles, KN95 masks, surgical masks, medical gloves, protective gowns, head covers, surgical caps, and shoe covers," he added.


Galang said the PAF is currently on its ninth tranche of continuous flights until the completion of the 1 million PPE sets.

"As a standard operating procedure, PAF medical teams and the Chemical Biological Radiological Nuclear Explosives personnel from 710th Special Operations Wing were present during the arrival of (these aircraft), ensuring that all cargoes and personnel present during the said activity underwent preventive disinfection and decontamination process," he added.

Galang also said that pilots and crew in these missions are dedicated to ensuring that essential medical supplies and other equipment are successfully transported.
