Caribbean Cargo mooves 159 cows from Miami to Barbados

Caribbean Airlines Cargo has safely transported 159 dairy cows from Miami to Barbados.

The cows were carried in stalls on two charter flights utilising the airline’s Boeing 767-300 freighter aircraft.

In addition, Caribbean Cargo highlighted that it is continuing to offer scheduled cargo services from Miami to the Caribbean, as well as and daily flights between Trinidad and Tobago.
