Emirates "Equine" helps 100 horses make big jumps
Close to 100 horses heading for the Shanghai leg of the Longines Global Champions Tour between 3 and 5 May 2019 were the latest to experience "Emirates Equine"- Emirates Skycargo’s specialised product for calm and comfortable transportation of horses.
Before boarding two B777Fs chartered for the occasion for their journey from Liège (Belgium), the horses were led into specially designed horse stalls which were then loaded directly into the cargo aircraft. On the flights, the horses were accommodated two per stall, considered to be the equivalent of business class travel, and treated with constant care.
The Dubai-based air cargo carrier worked with Peden Bloodstock, a reputed equine transport company, to ensure that the horses were well cared for so they could hit the ground running in China. (ah)
