Cavalia – first horse charter from Dubai World Central

We successfully managed a high-profile project to fly 47 horses from Dubai World Central – Al Maktoum International Airport (DWC) as part of the world-famous Cavalia equestrian tour.

The charter was alongside National Air Cargo on a Boeing 747-428(BCF) aircraft and it was the inaugural flight to make use of the newly-constructed horse loading ramp at DWC – a unique facility designed to allow for the increased import and export of live animal cargo.

We arranged the transportation of the horses to Ostend in Belgium following their show-stopping performances in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

Cavalia’s productions are a highlight in the live entertainment industry with their one-of-a-kind homage to the age-old bond between human and horse – and the safe transportation and well-being of the animals is considered a priority at all times.

With the help of National Air Cargo and Equitrans Logistics, the aircraft was configured to accommodate the horse stalls as well as a team of professional grooms to further ensure the welfare of the horses during the flight.

Charlie McMullen, Business Development Manager for Intradco Global, said:

“Animal transportation is a highly specialised business and charters of this nature always require meticulous planning and close coordination with the client and airline. We’re delighted to have assisted Cavalia with this project and together with National and Equitrans we’re pleased to be the first company to make use of the new horse loading ramp at Dubai World Central. This world-class facility will benefit us greatly when managing future horse movements in the Middle East.”
