Sharjah Airport’s Cargo Centre has completed its preparations for handling horse shipments.
The completion coincides with the beginning of the local and international horse racing and equestrian festival season.
The airport’s Cargo Centre now offers facilities and innovative logistic solutions for the transportation of purebred horses through the airport, in line with the efforts of the Sharjah Airport Authority to boost efficiency of air cargo operations, particularly while handling cargo that requires special attention.
The amenities include a dedicated stable on-site that guarantees easy access for the horses and their companions, and customised flooring like Astroturf.
Sharjah Aviation Services (SAS), the ground handling services provider at Sharjah Airport, offers these amenities through its specialised team.
The services of SAS have been recognised with the IATA Safety Audit for Ground Operations (ISAGO) certification, which reflects its dedication to ensuring the highest safety and security standards while handling all cargos.
