Turkish Cargo joins the Animal Transportation Association

Turkish Cargo has joined the Animal Transportation Association (ATA), which promotes the transport of live animals in secure and ideal conditions.       
ATA’s membership includes airlines, freight forwarders, marine companies, public institutions, universities, research agencies, animal breeders and veterinarians. It supports regulations on the international transportation requirements for live animals.
The airline also applies IATA’s Live Animals Regulations (LAR) in all its acceptance, storage and transportation processes for the live animal transportation service it provides to its customers.
Said an airline spokesperson for the carrier: "Turkish Cargo is committed to implement any and all rules to ensure documentation, packaging, labeling and marking, specified under the said regulations, strictly during the live animal transportation process."
Parent group Turkish Airlines adopted the United for Wildlife Buckingham Palace Declaration (UFW) in 2017, "showing the importance it attaches to prevention of illegal wildlife trade, and animal rights to raise the level of awareness".
