Intradco Cargo Services and operator National Air Cargo have 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 on a B747-428(BCF) aircraft 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.

Livestock and bloodstock transport specialists Intradco, recently acquired by global aircraft charter firm Chapman Freeborn, coordinated the project to fly the horses to Ostend in Belgium following their recent performances in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
