Up for the ($20m) cup

[ February 25, 2020   //   ]

InstoneAir has been working with Luck Greayer Bloodstock Shipping to support the world’s most valuable horse race, The Saudi Cup, which takes place in Riyadh on 29 February with prize money of $20 million.

The first competitors arrived safely in Saudi Arabia on board a Kalitta Air Boeing 747 chartered by InstoneAir for flights from Los Angeles and Fort Lauderdale. The flights were also the first outings for InstoneAir’s new European Aviation Safety Agency certified collapsible Airstables, which combine the highest standards of equine safety and comfort with improved cost efficiencies for the repositioning of empty Airstable horse stalls.

Working closely with Saudia Cargo, InstoneAir and LG have also been entrusted with moving elite racehorses from London Stansted, Shannon, Liege, Dubai and Hong Kong.
