WEC driver Flohr offering aviation help to tackle coronavirus
The FIA World Endurance Championship teams and drivers are showing acts of kindness in various ways during the current coronavirus pandemic.
Earlier this week we saw how British team JOTA Sport have been put their engineering expertise to good use by printing 3D face masks for the NHS. Read more HERE.
Today we wanted to highlight how LMGTE Am driver Thomas Flohr – who drives the No. 54 AF Corse Ferrari 488 GTE in LMGTE Am alongside Giancarlo Fisichella and Francesco Castellacci – is helping by providing free relief flights via his luxury air travel company, VistaJet.
Indeed, VistaJet is offering complimentary empty leg flights for governments and medical transportation to help ensure that those with critical travel requirements are able to keep moving. VistaJet is also in talks with medical organisations, health experts and regulators to identify other solutions to help, including the transportation of key medical supplies.
Flohr commented: “This is an unusual time and one that we must all work together where possible to do whatever we can to help. We know we don’t normally offer repatriation flights or the transportation of medical equipment, but ultimately, we are a logistics company and we are here to help the global community as much as we can. We are in this fight together.”
VistaJet has created a dedicated web page to channel all requests from governments and medical organisations to ensure prioritisation, address the most critical cases and manage the relevant safety screening.
