(PRESS RELEASE) PARIS, 3-Apr-2020 — /EuropaWire/ — VINCI Concessions’ infrastructures are being used for the medical transport of medical equipment and sick patients from coronavirus, as part of the Résilience operation announced by French President Emmanuel Macron.
On 29 and 30 March, Grenoble Alpes Isère airport received four medical flights from eastern France, enabling eight patients to be transferred to Grenoble Hospital. The hospitals are currently identifying needs and availability to plan other possible flights in the near future.
