The face masks were purchased by Airbus and will be donated to France, Germany, Spain and the United Kingdom.
The Aircraft, F-WWIL, took from Toulose, France and headed for Tianjin, China to load 4 million face masks on board. It then returned to Hamburg with its cargo.
Airbus Chief Executive Officer, Guillaume Faury, said: “I would like to pay tribute to all the Airbus teams, globally, supporting the fight against COVID-19. They’re living our values in assisting those who are saving lives every day,”
This flight was the third mission for Airbus in its support for the fight against Coronavirus.
It had previously deployed an A330-800 and an A330 Multi-Role Tanker Transport (MRTT).
Airbus has also used its Beluga fleet and an A400M to distribute masks between its sites including Broughton, North Wales.
It is also deploying its employees to help in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic by doing such things as designing and manufacturing ventilators and 3D printed visors.
