Intradco Global has successfully flown three planeloads of breeding pigs from Europe to China.
The animals were flown on three of Intradco Global’s Ilyushin Il-76TD-90VD aircraft, which feature custom-built crates and watering systems.
The pigs flew from London’s Stansted airport to Denmark for a full inspection and quarantine before continuing their journey to Jiangsu in China.
“The pigs arrived safely and in good condition, ready to begin the breeding programme,” a spokesperson at Intradco Global said.
Breed types of the pigs included Duroc, Landrace and Yorkshire nucleus herds.
