AirBridgeCargo shows off its horsepower


AirBridgeCargo Airlines demonstrated its horsepower by transporting nine racehorses from Moscow to Amsterdam on a Boeing 747-8 Freighter.

The abc care team oversaw each step of the journey, keeping waiting times to a minimum within warehouses, on the apron and while loading and unloading the aircraft.

ABC specialists tried to shorten before-the-flight standard procedures and set the required environmental conditions during the flight.

Tatyana Kosterina, who rode 11-year-old Diavolessa says it was a great experience to fly with her horse and be able to check the animal during the journey.

She says: “Air transportation is the most preferable way of journey, as we cover the distance within several hours and my horse does not experience car sickness, as is the case with vehicle transportation.”

Fedor Novikov, deputy general director of special products and services at AirBridgeCargo Airlines says: “We are honoured to be entrusted with the delivery of these horses. Our dedicated ‘abc care’ team with well-set operational processes in place guaranteed safe journey of animals which partially facilitated their sports results.”
