Qatar Airways Cargo transports 50 horses to FEI World Cup Finals

Posted 31 March 2017 · Add Comment

Qatar Airways Cargo has ensured the safety and comfort of 50 horses throughout their journey from Amsterdam to Omaha to the FEI World Cup Finals.

Each horse stall on the freighter was loaded with two horses, with a total of 11 grooms accompanying the equine guests. The freighter also carried 20 tonnes of equine equipment. On board the aircraft, an ambient temperature of 12 – 15 degrees celsius in the cargo bay during the flight ensured a comfortable journey for the horses travelling in their horse stalls. The cargo carrier will also fly the equine superstars back to Amsterdam after the FEI World Cup Finals.

Ulrich Ogiermann, chief officer cargo at Qatar Airways said: “Qatar Airways Cargo accomplished another successful equine charter this month. We place great emphasis on care and safety in live animal transportation, particularly horses which require specialist service and well-trained staff. We offer personalised solutions, high quality operations and an excellent record of on-time delivery, making us the premier carrier of live animals.”
