Cargolux not horsing around with equine customers

Cargolux Airlines International handled a record number of live animals in 2018, with its CV alive service experiencing 15.7% growth.

The number of horses increased most significantly, surging by 30% from 2,000 in 2017 to 2,600 in 2018.

Horses represent 50% of the total number of live animals Cargolux handles annually, and the airline offers services including HMC horse stalls to provide greater stability with a double layer pallet base to reduce the motion feeling for the horses.

Cargolux’s Boeing 747 Freighters are also equipped with multi-zone air conditioning systems that can be adapted to suit any animal’s environment throughout the flight.

Christian Theis, global product manager for CV alive at Cargolux says: “Cargolux is proud to have recorded such a significant increase in animal transportation. It is an important part of our business, and we have made a number of investments over the years to ensure a top-of-the-range transport solution. As a company committed to animal welfare, we intend to keep positively developing this product in full compliance with all international regulations as well as our stringent internal policies.”
