Delta has safety as a top priority in all of our operations and live animal safety is vitally important. As a reminder, temperature restrictions for live animals are in place and effective year round. The maximum temperature for warm-blooded live animal transport is 85°F/29°C and minimum is 10°F/-12°C any time live animals are in Delta’s care, including acceptance, transfer and at the destination prior to pick-up.
Please remember, if Delta determines temperatures are unsuitable for transporting a live animal, it is with the safety and health of the animal in mind.
Delta Cargo is committed to working with its customers to transport live animals securely and safely throughout our network. We appreciate your understanding and your cooperation in working with us during the hot summer months.
