Greece deploys firefighting aircraft to Albania

Greece sent four firefighting aircraft to Albania on Tuesday and Wednesday to help combat a large forest fire in the south of the country.

The deployment was organized through the European Civil Protection Mechanism after Albania requested assistance. Greece provided two PZL planes on Tuesday and two Canadair CL-415 aircraft on Wednesday.

According to the Greek Climate Crisis Ministry, despite facing its own challenging weather conditions, Greece’s response was swift.

The aircraft have since completed their mission and returned to Greece.
