30 March 2021 - 19:00
The transportation was accomplished in partnership with Astra Brokers for Moscow Zoo, one of the oldest zoos in Europe. Under the regular animals' exchange programme, the reindeer were safely delivered to Wuppertal Zoo in Germany.
The four two-year-old reindeer, each weighing around 150 kilogrammes, were placed comfortably in separate dedicated cages to guarantee their well-being during the flight.
Peter Novozhenov, regional director, Russia and CIS, said: 'We have transported deer previously, which has its special aspects the carrier needs to be aware of. The whole journey, which has been organised under IATA LAR and customer's requirements, went smoothly and the animals feel safe and comfortable right now.
'I would like to thank our local team for their great contribution and teamwork. In 2020 we favoured a significant increase in animals' transportation meeting the growing demand from the customers and we will keep on sharpening our expertise in this sector to guarantee high-quality service.'
