Kalitta Charters is widely known for our ability to transport animals, including marine mammals, safely and efficiently. Our client list includes many zoos, aquariums, veterinary clinics and research facilities. Recent shipments have included nine manatees, a beluga whale and a planeload of noisy penguins. Our aircraft are precisely climate-controlled to suit individual requirements.
By maintaining cooler temperatures for penguins and a lower cabin pressure / altitude for marine mammals such as the beluga whale, for example, all our non-human passengers experience a comfortable and healthy journey. Space is always provided for trainers, handlers and veterinarians. Kalitta Charters also transports animals for the US Department of Agriculture and support industries, including cattle, horses, swine, poultry and waterfowl.
