Air Partner flies rare sea eagle chicks


Company helps with re-introduction of rare birds to Scotland

Rare Sea Eagle chicks arrive in ScotlandAir Partner has
flown white-tailed sea eagle chicks from Norway
to Scotland
as part of a major reintroduction project. The 16 eaglets arrived in Edinburgh on a chartered
Metroliner and are now in aviaries in secret locations. Air Partner’s freight
team ensured the cabin temperature was maintained at 14°C for the two hour
flight from Alesund.

This latest
arrival of sea eagles, gifted to Scotland
from Norway,
received an official welcome on 24 June from Stewart Stevenson, the Scottish
Government’s Minister for Environment and Climate Change, and Norwegian Consul
Mona Røhne.

Lindon Cooper,
an Air Partner freight analyst, commented: “Air Partner frequently moves
animals and birds, and flying sea eagle chicks is repeat business for us. It is
an honour to fly such precious live cargo. The flight went smoothly and the
eaglets had the shortest and most comfortable transfer possible. We look
forward to the day when they will take to the skies using their own power.”
