Air Freight Specialist Helps Restock Zoo Hit by Tragedy

NETHERLANDS – GEORGIA – Coyne Airways gave Tbilisi Zoo a helping hand by safely delivering its latest residents this week. A tiger, seven red-neck wallabies, six Barbary sheep, and 24 African penguins made the trip from the Netherlands to Tbilisi, Georgia, on Sunday, April 2 on board a Coyne Airways Boeing 777 freighter. The animals were donated as part of a project to repopulate the zoo, following a flood, caused by a freak storm in June 2015, in which hundreds of the zoo's animal inhabitants and at least 20 humans tragically lost their lives.
