The company is also investing in bespoke in-house staff training on; animal handling, welfare regulations and container requirements.
“Animal welfare is a priority for us at IAG Cargo and we pride ourselves in going above and beyond the requirements set out by IATA Live Animal Regulations” commented Daniel Johnson, manager global products, IAG Cargo.
