The transport helicopter moves all materiel that, for security or other reasons, cannot be transported by road. The helicopter with a lifting capacity of 20 tonnes has already flown three times from Kunduz in northern Afghanistan to the airport in Mazar-e Sharif to the west, from where the materiel is then transported to the Netherlands.
The police training mission ended on 1 July. The first 100 military personnel returned home last week. The last military personnel, who are responsible for redeployment, are scheduled to leave before 1 November.
