Pandas Prefer to Fly FedEx Express

Once again, FedEx has been entrusted to transport giant pandas internationally, this time from the U.S. to China.  On February 4, the “FedEx Panda Express” – a custom-decaled 777F aircraft – will take flight from Washington, D.C. with two giant pandas destined for their new homes in China.  Tai Shan, a 4-and-a-half-year-old male panda, and Mei Lan, a 3-year-old female panda, were both born in the U.S. and will depart for China as part of broader giant panda conservation programs designed to help save this endangered species.
