Two giant Chinese pandas, Mao Sun and Xing Er, will be making their way with SAS Cargo from Beijing to their new home in Copenhagen Zoo on the 4th of April.
The preparations for the arrival of these two new VIP residents has been under way for years. The giant pandas moving to Copenhagen from the Chengdu Panda base is a gesture of goodwill from the president of China, Xi Jinping, following Her Majesty the Queen of Denmark’s State Visit to China in 2014 .
The bears can expect an exceptional welcome in Denmark.
We are very proud to be appointed the official carrier of this very prestigious transport. We feel that being entrusted with bringing Mao Sun and Xing Er to their new home in Copenhagen is a big recognition of our continuous efforts in putting safety and quality at the forefront of all our operations. We have some very exciting days ahead of us now, planning for all the important steps in making this a safe and smooth journey for these two VIP travelers, says Leif Rasmussen, President and CEO, SAS Cargo Group A/S.
