Last week Instone Air arranged flights on behalf of BBA Shipping for UK and Irish runners heading to the prestigious Amir Sword horseracing festival in Qatar. We were delighted to fly the winner of the local G1 Amir Trophy, OUTBOX. Congratulations to all involved in his success.

In order to coordinate the horses travel, we were required to arrange a special charter for the Irish runners to fly into Paris in order to connect with a flight out to Doha. The UK runners flew straight from Stansted.

We have also been busy supplying stalls for horses heading to the Saudi Cup in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Some of the best racehorses in the world will be flying into Riyadh from all over, along with 17 UK and Irish horses who flew out of Stansted on Sunday. All horses travelled well in their fully-enclosed rigid Instone Airstables  and have settled in well ahead of racing this weekend .
