Following the first wave of the pandemic, BUD Cargo City is now ready to receive medical shipments also during the second wave, as it had started preparations some time ago for providing all the conditions required for transportation and storage of the long-awaited vaccine, once available.
The temperature-controlled facilities in BUD Cargo City are offering an ideal physical environment for warehousing and forwarding of vaccines and their components. Joint work in this optimal environment based on the professionalism of specialist staff, exchange of information, and a detailed action plan ensures that Budapest Airport is ready to support Hungary and the Central-Eastern European region in the fight against the pandemic.
The first meeting of the vaccine logistics working group including the representatives of the authorities, air freight operators, ground handling agents, and other logistics experts was held last week.
On another note, Budapest Airport has handed over a new obstacle-free washroom and locker room in Pier 1 of Ferenc Liszt International Airport featuring, in addition to mandatory elements of obstacle-free sanitary blocks, special equipment developed for serving PRM passengers who need special assistance, including a bed that can be lifted, a special body lifting device, and a folding screen ensuring maximum discretion. Budapest Airport is proud to have joined other airports where similarly complex obstacle-free washrooms are available.
