Cargolux has welcomed home its freighter LX-VCF which received a surgical facemask paint job during a scheduled maintenance check in Taipei.

The Luxembourg-based cargo carrier is embracing the Grand-Duchy’s promotion of facemask wearing by adding the tagline “not without my mask” to the special livery.

Cargolux was visited by Luxembourg’s Prime Minister Xavier Bettel and Deputy Prime Minister François Bausch at the company’s headquarters to view the aircraft and mark the occasion. The ministers also took the time to talk to employees and express their gratitude for their tireless work during the challenging period.
