Turkish Cargo has safely transported over 60 horses from Chicago to Istanbul.

The air cargo company transported 63 horses in total, 59 of which were shipped at the same time.

These horses were moved from Chicago to Istanbul by making use of specially designed 21 stalls (dedicated horse barns) with non-skid surface and oval edges. Since they are not allowed to be transported unattended as per international regulations, the horses were accompanied by their keepers and IATA Live Animals Regulation (LAR) certified Turkish Cargo personnel during the flight. 

Having been lodged for a short time in the live animal rooms at Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport in conformity with their natural living conditions, the horses were delivered to their owners in Turkey through the dedicated loading doors, enabling ready movement.

In respect of the live animal shipment service it offers to its customers in 127 countries worldwide; Turkish Cargo takes the IATA LAR (International Air Transport Association, Live Animals Regulations) as reference for its acceptance, storage and shipment processes, and continues to implement the documentation, packaging, labelling and marking rules, as specified in the said regulations, strictly during the shipment of live animals

TK LIVE has been developed specifically for live animal shipments by Turkish Cargo.

Last month, Turkish Cargo transported Turkey’s first electric automobile to the US.
