flydubai Cargo is offering live animal transportation across its network, having successfully moved two Saluki dogs and seven falcons for a competition in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan.
The project was undertaken in association with the Department of Culture and Tourism for Abu Dhabi to support the UAE’s participation in the event.
The airline offers services including door to door or airport to airport transport and the option to book return flights for pets and other live animals.
Animal transport services can also be used for agricultural and zoological purposes, all of which follows the IATA Live Animals Regulations to ensure animals are transported safely and humanely.
flydubai Cargo has a dedicated facility for live animals and offers specialised animal care during transit in Dubai, with services including full physical check-ups, feeding, walking and administering medicine, with pet cleaning also available upon request.
flydubai Cargo vice president, Mohamed Hassan says: “Since we began our operations in 2012, we have been focused on offering customers consistent and efficient cargo solutions and we are delighted that we will now be able to offer live animal transportation.
“We would like to thank the Department of Culture and Tourism for choosing to work with us and giving us the opportunity to promote the culture of the UAE during the recent event. We look forward to the benefits that this service will provide our network and beyond.”
