Two Emirates SkyCargo special freighter charters have touched down in the UK in the last few days, carrying a record cargo of over 100 horses. The first shipment of 70 horses, that touched down on 27 April, was the largest number ever transported by Emirates SkyCargo on a single freighter flight. The second flight arrived two days later carrying 42 horses.

The horses of the Royal Cavalry of Oman were flown from Muscat to Stansted in a Boeing 777 freighter aircraft that had custom-built IATA-certified horse stalls for the Diamond Jubilee Pageant, which takes place from 10-13 May at Windsor Castle.
