EU HUMANITARIAN AIR BRIDGE
1. What is the EU Humanitarian Air Bridge ?
The EU Humanitarian Air Bridge (EU HAB) is an integrated package of services to support the delivery of humanitarian aid to third countries in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak. It supports the delivery of COVID-19 related equipment, sustains the flow of humanitarian supplies, and facilitates the movement of humanitarian staff.
It offers to Member States dedicated air transport capacity to support the immediate logistical needs of humanitarian actors involved in the struggle against the pandemic.
Conceived as a temporary initiative for 3 to 6 months, it acts in complementarity with the logistical services included in the UN Global Humanitarian Response Plan.
