Over 60 horses will make a 9,330 km journey from Liege Airport to Hong Kong for the second annual Longines Hong Kong Masters equestrian competition. Liege Airport, from which all the European horses are leaving, is a partner of the event. The second Hong Kong Masters will bring together the elite of international show jumping at the AsiaWorld-Expo.  
 “We have made the transport of live animals one of our specialities”, says Luc Partoune, GM of Liege Airport who added that over 3,000 horses were handled by the airport last year. “Two aircraft belonging to TNT Airways and Emirates Sky Cargo will transport the horses under the best possible conditions to Hong Kong airport,” he said.
