When Lufthansa’s flight LH760 departed for Delhi, India on Sunday April 26, it was carrying over 60 aid workers from Germany’s Federal Agency for Technical Relief who are enroute to Nepal to assist survivors after earthquakes shattered the region.

The reason that the team is heading to Delhi is because Katmandu’s airport is closed, making Delhi the hub of operations for relief flights.

Also on board this particular flight was over 8 tons of equipment including a portable unit designed to house patients requiring intensive care.  Additionally, 8 specially trained dogs were aboard who will help search for survivors amid the rubble.

Lufthansa Cargo will be assisting the German government in the coming days by providing additional airlift support if necessary.
