Jan 21, 2019: Turkish Cargo has completed two different cargo operations on January 14 by carrying 17 horses to Istanbul, Turkey and Dubai, UAE.
Initially based in the US, a total of 15 foals and horses were brought from Chicago to Istanbul in order to contribute to horse breeding in Turkey. The horses were carried in five stalls, specially designed for a comfortable journey with a nonslip ground and oval edges and were safely brought to their new home with the help of special loading doors, enabling easy movement.
Likewise, two purebreds named ‘Good Curry’ and ‘Peri Lina’ were transported from Istanbul to Dubai in order to attend the Dubai World Cup, an annual event organised since 1996 and one of the world’s most important horse racing festivals.
Turkish Cargo has recently joined Animal Transportation Association, one of the international organisations, which aim to transport live animals at secure and ideal conditions. It also abides by the IATA Live Animals Regulations (IATA LAR) in all its acceptance, storage and transportation processes for the live animal transportation service it provides to its customers.
Live animals are hosted in Turkish Cargo’s live animal accommodation and care rooms which embody shelters equipped with remote-controlled temperature and humidity monitoring systems.
