Boeing : Equine champions fly home on Emirates SkyCargo

09/16/2021 | 09:12am EDT

Dubai, UAE - On the afternoon of 2nd September, EK 9497, an Emirates Boeing 777 freighter transporting 40 horses from Haneda Airport landed at Liege Airport.

* Air cargo carrier operated a total of 16 flights over seven weeks to fly horses for the Olympic and Paralympic Games

* 316 horses flown from Liege to Tokyo and 323 flown from Tokyo to Liege

* Effort concludes more than 18 months of planning

* 157 grooms, 160 tonnes of equipment, 336 horse stalls flown on the charters

This was the last of the 16 flights that Emirates SkyCargo operated to transport champion horses between Liege and Tokyo, bringing to a successful close one of the largest horse charter movements in the history of air transport.

Nabil Sultan, Emirates Divisional Senior Vice President, Cargo, said: 'Emirates SkyCargo is delighted to have successfully wrapped up the horse charters for the world's most prestigious sporting event. It was a monumental effort from our team requiring months of planning and coordination with our partners and authorities to make sure that these international equine champions were given the best care and flight experience. We drew upon our extensive experience flying horses for sporting events across the world for the last two decades to operate the 16 flights between Liege and Tokyo.'

Emirates SkyCargo transported 316 horses on eight flights from Liege to Tokyo and 323 horses on an equal number of flights for the return journey over a period of seven weeks with the first flight operated on 13th July and the last operated on 2nd September.

The 16 flights were operated by three Emirates Boeing 777 freighters in a high density configuration (A6-EFG, A6-EFH and A6-EFK) allowing for between 9 and 11 grooms to fly with and look after the equine guests on each flight. In all, 157 grooms flew on the charter flights between Liege and Tokyo.

A total of 60 Emirates flight deck crew operated the 16 horse charter flights. The air cargo carrier also transported 336 horse stalls, more than 160 tonnes of special equipment and food and drink for the equine champions on its flights.

Emirates SkyCargo worked with Peden Bloodstock and the Federation Equestre Internationale (FEI) closely over 18 months to finalise the details of the charter flights and to ensure that the horses would travel in a comfortable and stress free environment and be ready to hit the ground running on arrival.

The charter planning team at Emirates SkyCargo ensured the entire operation ran like clockwork, including securing available aircraft, flight deck crew, loadmasters and technical ground support teams. As it was also the first time Emirates SkyCargo operated cargo flights with horses to Haneda Airport, the air cargo carrier coordinated extensively with the local authorities to make sure that the unloading and loading of the horses took place smoothly.

Emirates is one of the world's leaders in air transportation of horses for sporting events. The carrier has developed Emirates Equine, a specialised product for the calm and comfortable transportation of horses on its Boeing 777 freighter aircraft which complies with IATA Live Animal Regulations (LAR) and all other applicable guidelines.

Emirates SkyCargo is the airfreight division of Emirates. Through its state of the art hub in Dubai, Emirates SkyCargo transports cargo to over 140 destinations across a global network spanning six continents. The air cargo carrier offers customers cargo capacity on its modern fleet of all widebody Boeing 777 and Airbus A380 aircraft. For more information, www.skycargo.com
