High corona case numbers in Africa combined with a slump in passenger business: Due to the pandemic, the state-owned airline Ethiopian Airlines (EAL) is facing major challenges. Thanks to state-of-the-art equipment at the cargo logistic center newly built by Unitechnik, the company has been able to adapt at least part of its business model to the new situation: The air cargo facility in Addis Ababa serves as a hub for the humanitarian flights of the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP).

There are currently many indications that the pandemic is gradually taking over the African continent – the 54 African countries have recently recorded 1,128,061 confirmed infections across the continent (latest information form August 17th).
