UIA carried Spheniscus humboldti Czech Republic to Turkey


Thursday, June 18, 2015, 3 Spheniscus humboldti (penguins) were transported on Ukraine International Airlines flights PS808 Prague – Kiev and PS715 Kiev – Istanbul. Transportation of the animals was carried out under the UIA Professional Cargo Solutions program.

Professional transportation of wild and exotic animals is a part of the freight portfolio of Ukraine International Airlines, which has long been cooperating with zoological nurseries around the world supporting their efforts to preserve endangered species.

When carrying such exotic passengers as penguins the airline must keep to strict delivery limits and special handling procedures. UIA complied with all international requirements to provide the penguins with the most comfortable flight conditions, specific nutrition, and special care. The animals were successfully transported to their new habitat.
