  • Cargolux Horses Ashgabat

The horses participated in the Equestrian Jumping competition at the 2017 Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games. The games, which were awarded to Ashgabat by the Olympic Council of Asia in 2010, involved 6,000 athletes and officials from 65 teams. Equestrian Jumping was introduced as an Olympic sport at the Paris 1900 Games.

After the completion of the games on 27 September, Cargolux carried the horses back to Luxembourg, again in cooperation with Peden Bloodstock.

Relying on the proven support of its handling agent, LuxairCARGO, the experienced Cargolux team used its state-of-the-art HMC horse stalls that offer increased safety and comfort for its four-legged VIPs. The HMC not only provides higher stability but its double layer pallet base also reduces the motion feeling for the horses, greatly reducing the stress the animals feel compared to single layer pallets.

Cargolux is a major industry player in the transportation of horses by air. The airline’s dedicated team of experts regards each animal as a special responsibility that has to be treated with utmost care. Cargolux is a member of ATA, the Animal Transport Association, whose aim is to ensure that animal handlers and attendants are fully qualified. With its vast knowledge and experience, gained from worldwide horse transports in over 45 years, Cargolux fully integrates international standards in animal care, treatment and transport. Utilizing the superior HMC stalls, Cargolux sets the standards in the transport of valuable horses.
