WHAT WE OFFER
Air Charter Service is a trusted animal transportation specialist. Using an air charter is far quicker – and therefore more humane – than moving animals by road, sea or scheduled flight. Each animal’s wellbeing is paramount and we take every professional care to provide a smooth and comfortable journey, from sourcing the ideal aircraft to fully briefing crew-members and arranging onboard experts to accompany the animals. Drawing on decades of experience in this sensitive field, ACS specialises in the air charter transportation of a wide range of animals, including:
- Exotic and zoo animals
- Birds, fowl, and day-old chicks
- Livestock such as cattle, sheep, and goat
- Large animals such as rhino, elephant, ostrich, and giraffe
