AIA Cargo assist in Born Free movement of 7 year old lions Black & Jora

After a few months of planning AIA Cargo today met Black and Jora, two seven-year-old male Lion brothers who were rescued by Born Free in July this year. The lions were flown from Bourgas airport to London Gatwick by our Thomson Airways B787 Dreamliner and awaiting their arrival was the legendary actress and Born Free Foundation Co-Founder, Virginia McKenna OBE, who made a special trip airside to greet Black and Jora. The lions then commenced the longest leg of their mammoth journey, flying from Heathrow to Johannesburg. All the staff at AIA Cargo wish them well on their new adventure

A special thanks goes to Mr Simon Gent UK Leisure Cargo Manager who with the assistance of Thomson Airways, Born Free and Leisure Cargo GSA partner in Bulgaria overlooked and ensure the operation went as smooth as possible.
