Equine business class

A total of 67 world-class showjumping horses were transported on Qatar Airways Cargo freighters from Liège, Belgium, to Doha, Qatar, for the final round of the 2014 Longines Global Champions Tour season.
The horses, along with approximately 20 tonnes of cargo and equestrian equipment per freighter, were transported via two B777F charter operations, with an accompanying eleven grooms per freighter.
“We take great pride in our handling capabilities and ensure all appropriate care is taken, providing pets and other transported animals with a five-star service on the ground and in the air," said Ulrich Ogiermann, Chief Officer Cargo for Qatar Airways.
He added: "All Qatar Airways Cargo staff attend a number of training courses in animal handling, and our personalised service, high quality of operation, and excellent record of on-time delivery makes us a prime carrier for the transportation of live animals.”
