Cargolux transports four tigers to Hanoi, Vietnam

July 25, 2016: Cargolux transported four tigers from their origin in the Czech Republic to Luxembourg and onwards to Hanoi on a Cargolux 747 freighter.

The three female and one male animals belong to the species of Indochinese Tigers, known as Hổ Đông Dương in Vietnam, and only around 600 are currently alive in the wilderness of Southeast Asia.

The four animals that Cargolux has flown will spend their lives in the safety of Hanoi Zoo as it is one of Vietnam’s national animals.

Indochinese tigers are also an increasingly rare sight in zoos around the world as less than 20 are registered in captivity worldwide.

Cargolux’s aircraft offer an ideal conditioned environment for the animals, thanks to ventilation and temperature control systems, including state-of-the-art HVAC systems, that duplicate any natural environment from 4˚C to 29˚C.

With CV Alive, Cargolux guarantees specialised care by qualified staff that work to high professional standards to safeguard the welfare of all animals Cargolux carries.

The tigers travelled in the comfort and security they deserved in full compliance with the IATA Live Animal Regulations and the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species.
