Caribbean carries 159 dairy cows from US to Barbados
Caribbean Airlines Cargo recently shipped 159 dairy cows to Barbados, on two consecutive charter flights out of Miami, US on its dedicated B-767-300 all-cargo freighter.
The airline worked closely with veterinary offices and other stakeholders, to ensure compliance and the safe passage of the animals. It also ensured the comfort of the cattle, by housing them in its world class stalls during the flight.
