Air Charter Service has helped rehome two dolphins from Amsterdam to their new home in the Canary Islands. ‘Sting’ and ‘Makai’ travelled on an AN-74 aircraft with qualified vets in attendance from Maastricht Airport to Las Palmas Airport on 4 May where they were transported on to Palmitos Park, a botanical zoo on the island, with a large dolphinarium. A lot of careful planning was needed to ensure that the dolphins were and the total transit time was not to exceed twelve hours, and the cabin pressure was carefully regulated.
