Turkish Cargo have transported 63 horses, 59 of which were shipped at the same time, from Chicago to Istanbul safely.
The horses were brought in comfort 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 the international regulations, the horses were accompanied by their keepers and the IATA Live Animals Regulation (LAR) certificated Turkish Cargo personnel during the flight.
Having been lodged for a short time in the live animal rooms at the Ataturk Airport in conformity with their natural living conditions, the horses were delivered healthy and hale to their owners in Turkey through the dedicated loading doors enabling ready movement.
