Posted 5 February 2019 · Add Comment

Etihad Cargo and EEM World have announced that Etihad Cargo was chosen to transport a special consignment of show jumping horses from Belgium to Hong Kong for the annual Longines Masters of Hong Kong taking place on 15-17 February.

 

This is the third consecutive year that Etihad Cargo has been entrusted with the transport of these elite horses for the world’s most prestigious show jumping event. The dedicated charter flight from Liège Airport to Hong Kong International Airport will deliver 68 horses accompanied by professional grooms and a veterinarian for the round-trip journey.

Wiam Al Qamshui, business development manager responsible for Etihad Cargo’s Equine product ‘SkyStables’, said: “We are honoured to have been chosen again to look after this very important shipment of prized animals. In the five years since our SkyStables product was introduced, Etihad Cargo has become one of the industry’s most experienced specialist equine carriers. We move horses all around the world from places like Barbados, Bogota and Japan, as well as the key Europe and Middle East equine markets. Today’s announcement comes on the back of a record 2018 that saw us transport over 2,000 horses for the first time.”

Christophe Ameeuw, Founder and CEO of EEM, said: “The horses flying to Hong Kong are the stars of our show and without them there would be no Longines Masters of Hong Kong. We are delighted to entrust the safety and care of these world class show jumping horses to Etihad Cargo this year again.  We look forward to their arrival at Hong Kong airport next Monday 11 February and kick off of the Masters and the Asia Horse Week.”
