Emirates SkyCargo flies champion horses to Dubai and across the globe

Posted 3 April 2018 · Add Comment

Emirates SkyCargo, the freight division of Emirates, has transported leading equines for a variety of championship events across the globe.

 

Dubai World Cup 

The carrier most recently flew in some of the world’s most highly rated racehorses to Dubai for the Dubai World Cup Championship, one of the most anticipated and prestigious horse racing events in the world. Some of the leading contenders for the Dubai World Cup such as West Coast, Mubtaahij, and Talismanic had made their journey from their homes to Dubai on Emirates SkyCargo’s fleet of freighters. Emirates SkyCargo has transported some of the past champions of the Dubai World Cup including Arrogate in 2017 and California Chrome in 2016. 

Every year, during the racing season in Dubai, Emirates SkyCargo plays an important role in flying horses from their homes to Dubai. The air cargo carrier transported horses from across six continents in the months running up to Dubai World Cup.

Longines Global Champions Tour

For the third year in a row, Emirates SkyCargo is transporting close to 100 horses across continents during the first three legs of one of the world’s leading show jumping events- the Longines Global Champions Tour. 

Show jumping horses were moved in two special charter flights from Mexico City where they took part in the first leg of the Longines Global Champions Tour to Miami. The horses arrived in Miami on the 31st of March where they will be competing in the second round of the Tour.

In addition to the horses, each weighing between 600-650 kilograms, equipment weighing tens of tonnes was also transported as part of the charter.

Once done with the competitions at Miami, the horses will be flown to Liege and from there to Shanghai on Emirates SkyCargo’s freighters.
