Etihad Cargo Launches SkyStables

Aug. 14--Supervised by expert managers, SkyStables offers owners, breeders and equestrian organisations bespoke global transport arrangements on Etihad Cargo?s fleet of 10 Airbus and Boeing wide-body freighters.

Etihad Cargo, the freight division of Etihad Airways, has unveiled a new Equine service called SkyStables, targeted at customers around the world wishing to transport horses and other similar species by air.

Supervised by expert managers, SkyStables offers owners, breeders and equestrian organisations bespoke global transport arrangements on Etihad Cargo's fleet of 10 Airbus and Boeing wide-body freighters.

The service, bookable from Wednesday, is being rolled-out across Etihad Cargo's scheduled network of 44 freighter destinations with personalised charter services to other cities also available. Horses travel in dedicated stalls equipped with anti-slip floors, which are then loaded in temperature controlled sections of the aircraft. Throughout the flight, the animals can be attended to by their grooms, ensuring arrival at their destination fit and healthy.

Kevin Knight, Etihad Airways Chief Strategy and Planning Officer, said: "Our new global SkyStables product is a tangible example of innovation being at the very forefront of how we continue to develop our business by adding more services for new and existing customers.
