As part of the so-called clover leaf system, Covid 19 patients were flown out of Bavaria for the first time on Friday. It all started with a flight from Memmingen Airport to Münster-Osnabrück Airport. Six intensive care patients from Swabia were on board.

In the early afternoon, the Airbus A310 MedEvac landed at Memmingen Airport to take patients from several intensive care units from Swabia on board. They were brought to the airport in specially equipped vehicles and accompanied by doctors. Your further treatment takes place in clinics in North Rhine-Westphalia. The Bundeswehr Airbus is considered a flying intensive care unit, according to the airport. In addition to six intensive care patients, it can transport a further 38 people lying down and is an important link in a global rescue chain in the Bundeswehr for the care and evacuation of injured or sick soldiers. He landed in Memmingen for the first time in October last year when he brought injured Ukrainian soldiers to Germany for treatment at the Bundeswehr hospital in Ulm.
