CNO's Treshold Aviation Group helps Cargo Flights carrying COVID-19 Supplies
CNO tenant, Threshold Aviation Group was contacted in mid-May by one of its freight forwarding customers to load COVID-19 Relief Supplies onto Cargo Flights for one of its own customer's main cargo airline clients.

This mission consisted of 20 back-to-back cargo flights in which Threshold loaded a total of 880 skids containing PPE face coverings, ventilators and raw material to use in the manufacture of face coverings. Threshold’s Line Service Group worked overnight to ensure each aircraft was loaded and fueled on time in order to get the COVID-19 Relief Supplies delivered the next day to awaiting hospitals, across the country.

"We were very grateful to participate in this relief mission as one of our main goals is to make a difference in the lives of those in our community and around the country" says Nicole DiLullo of Threshold.
