On Sunday 23 February around midday a DHL Boeing 767 touched down at Brussels Airport. The plane arrived from Chengdu in China, carrying an exceptional payload: Hao Hao and Xing Hui, two four-year old giant pandas.
From Brussels Airport the pandas were carried by road to Pairi Daiza, an animal parc in Brugelette in the province of Hainaut. Belgium has Hao Hao and Xing Hui on loan for a 15-year period as part of a giant panda reproduction program.
