Royal Jordanian recently introduced special stalls highly equipped to transport horses on board the airline's freighters. These stalls have special, modern features that guarantee the transport of horses on these freighters throughout the airline's network.
RJ Cargo purchased the first two stalls, each accommodating three large horses at one time. The company is planning to add more stalls in the near future in order to serve the growing demand on this service in Jordan and the region.
The move comes in line with the International Air Transport Associationís requirements for horse freighting. The RJ-colored stalls have the highest safety and quality standards, in addition to being modern and sturdy. The 800-kg stalls cost 30,000 euros each.
They are collapsible, which facilitates their transport, after unloading, to the RJ warehouse at Queen Alia International Airport, or even sending them to the outstations upon demand.
RJ introduced the stalls to support horse freighting in Jordan, the Arab Gulf and Europe. Brussels and Dubai are major stations for freighting horses on the RJ route network.
