40 tonnes of live honey bee land at Ras Al Khaimah Airport

March 25, 2019: Ras Al Khaimah International Airport handled a major live honey bee shipment on March 14, 2019.

40 tonnes of live honeybees landed at the airport on an Egypt Air Cargo flight from Cairo for the first time in 2019.

Many customers were waiting to welcome the bees and take them to various farms across the UAE.

Al Najeh Honey entrusted Ras Al Khaimah International Airport (RAK) with this task and the entry of the honeybees to UAE was executed flawlessly by RAK airport offering best handling services thereby ensuring that the honey bee shipment is delivered and handed over to the consignee in the shortest possible time.

Al Najeh Honey farm started as a small trading business 26 years ago and since then begun raising and exporting queen bees and apiary equipment. The apiary is located in a remote desert property surrounded by a rickety barbed wire fence which holds 100 hives, each discreetly stored along the shady trees in locked plastic chests filled with trays of honeycombs guarded by thousands of bees.

Al Najeh Honey owns and operates farms all through Egypt, Saudi and UAE, mostly in the Northern Emirates near Al Dhaid.

Today, Al Najeh Honey has grown to be the largest bee supplier in the world using airfreight and transporting approximately 4.8 billion bees between Egypt, UAE, Oman, Sudan and Saudi Arabia.
