Luxembourg, 27 August 2020 – On Thursday, Cargolux welcomed home its freighter LX-VCF that now sports a surgical facemask on its iconic nose as it received a brand-new paint job following a scheduled maintenance check in Taipei.
By adding the tagline “not without my mask” to the special livery, the airline embraces the Luxembourg government’s campaign to promote the use of face masks in the current environment, an initiative that is supported both by the Grand-Duchy and its national cargo carrier. To mark the occasion, Cargolux was honored to receive the visit of Luxembourg’s Prime Minister Xavier Bettel and Deputy Prime Minister François Bausch at the company’s headquarters to view the aircraft. They also took the time to talk to employees and express their gratitude for the tireless work they achieved during this challenging period.
In addition to underlining Cargolux’s support for the governmental engagement, it also serves to reflect the airline’s commitment to the fight against COVID-19. Engaged since the outset of the pandemic, Cargolux has leveraged its long-standing expertise to provide transport solutions for PPE shipments.
“The special mask livery combined with the Luxembourg government’s slogan, reflect both our engagement in the fight against COVID-19. Since the outbreak began, Cargolux has worked closely with the Luxembourg government to transport essential medical and PPE supplies. We are proud to have played a role in bringing the needed supplies to Luxembourg and we are fully equipped and ready to contribute to the transport of any vaccine that becomes available on the market”, says Richard Forson, President & CEO.
