Project Air Bridge In Response To COVID-19
April 16, 2020
The Federal Emergency Management (FEMA) Agency launched Project Air Bridge on March 29, 2020 to speed the delivery of much-needed medical equipment and supplies from overseas manufacturers in response to COVID-19.
The program partners with U.S. medical supply distributors to airlift personal protective equipment from foreign factories. FEMA is chartering planes to bring supplies for companies to decrease the shipping time for critical supplies, such as N-95 respirators, surgical masks, gloves and gowns.
