116 yaks fly first class aboard a B747-400F

Silk Way West Airlines recently demonstrated its expertise in the transport of live animals. At the request of Azerbaijan’s ministry of agriculture, the cargo airline was commissioned to fly 116 yaks from Kyrgyzstan to Azerbaijan.


No sooner said than done; a few days ago the farm animals flew on board a B747-400F from Bishkek Manas airport to Ganja, in northwestern Azerbaijan.


Specially made, animal-friendly crates were customised for the cattle for this transport, to guarantee the most comfortable and stress-free journey possible for the animals and minimise the risk of injury. After arriving in Ganja the yaks were transported by truck to the lush pastures of Kalbajar. (dt)
