As part of a wildlife reintroduction project, Silk Way West Airlines flew 100 yaks over more than 2,000 kilometres from Kyrgyzstan to Azerbaijan. The cargo experts transported the herd from Bishkek Manas International Airport to Baku Heydar Aliyev International Airport. Moving these animals was a challenge that the freight airline successfully completed in accordance with the request of the Ministry of Agriculture of the Republic of Azerbaijan. Thanks to the airline’s crew and loadmasters’ long experience with animal transportation, the yaks all were delivered safely to their destination and were subsequently transported to their new pastures by truck from the airport.  

Silk Way West Airlines has successfully handled numerous live animal shipments in the past, in accordance with all IATA regulations. The carrier’s extensive experience includes the transportation of alpacas, kangaroos, dogs, horses and European bison.

Silk Way West Airlines aircraft provide their animal passengers with a perfectly air-conditioned and ventilated environment thanks to ventilation and temperature control systems. The yaks were transported in special cages designed to ensure that they were not exposed to any risk of injury during the flight and remained under veterinary supervision throughout their journey to ensure their wellbeing.

“We are proud to be involved in projects like this, contributing to the preservation of a sustainable and biodiverse environment worldwide. Thanks to an experienced crew and accompanying veterinarians, we were able to safely transport the yaks to their new home in Azerbaijan. We thank the Ministry of Agriculture of the Republic of Azerbaijan for their trust in our work,” said Vugar Mammadov, Vice-President CIS and Central Asia of Silk Way West Airlines.
