‘Mars’ the Persian cat travels first class

Jun 15, 2018
Target Logistics in Karachi has recently flown a female Persian cat named Mars from Karachi, Pakistan, to Manila in the Philippines.

Nothing unusual perhaps, except that Mars travelled in the passenger cabin of a Turkish airline’s scheduled flight. A long route using the Turkish carrier had to be planned via Istanbul with a 12-hour stopover at Istanbul Ataturk Airport, as most other airlines do not allow an in-cabin option for animals.

Mars, who was accompanied by a human carer, travelled in an appropriate container, following strict regulations of size, ventilation and door opening, to ensure a comfortable and secure flight for the friendly feline who weighs in at 5-6Kgs.

The entire process was handled by Target Moving & Relocations - a division of Target Group – and included vaccination and certification by a vet, documentation, on-board care, and final transfer to Mars’ home in Manila.

Greetings from Mars
