Complex moo-vement for ABC

[ July 4, 2019   //   ]

AirBridgeCargo Airlines (ABC) loaded a herd of 146 heifers on board one of its 747-8F freighters for a flight from Houston to Bangkok. The shipment was arranged in partnership with specialist animal forwarder Intradco Global.

The animals were grouped in 27 cow stalls for the 17,182 kilometers, 19 hours 45 minute flight with temperature maintained at 6 °C to 10 °C.

ABC general director, Sergey Lazarev, said: “We treat animals not like special cargo, but rather as very sensitive passengers who require extra care and attention.”

A pat on the back for all concerned.
