500 horses to make a stop at Liege Airport’s Horse Inn facility ahead of WEG
Sep 05, 2018: The Horse Inn facility at Liege Airport will host 500 horses this month (September) as they fly to the United States from the Belgian hub for the FEI World Equestrian Games.
The FEI World Equestrian Games will be held in the USA, at Tryon (North Carolina), from September 11 to 23.
In 2016, the Horse Inn facility was opened to provide even better services to the four-legged animals. The handling company LACHS manages the Horse Inn.
For David Alexis, deputy general manager, this is an exceptional operation: “We are used to managing the transport of horses for the biggest equestrian competitions in the world, but here the number of horses and flights is much greater. We have planned teams of experts at each stage of the handling chain: equipment for the horses, reception of the horses in the boxes, loading the planes and also the cleaning. For each operation, 25 people will be present to ensure smooth running. Nothing can be left to chance in this type of operation which has become a trademark of Lachs and Liege Airport for more than 10 years.”
Liege Airport and LACHS are working with Peden Bloodstock, the world’s leading equestrian transport and logistics specialist, to complete this important logistical challenge.
Dubai-based Emirates is the airline providing 19 flights between Liege Airport and Greenville-Spartanburg International (South Carolina).
Félix-Marie Brasseur, Ambassador of the Horse Inn for Liege Airport expresses his satisfaction: “After the Olympic Games in Rio in 2016, this operation places Liege even more on the international map for the equestrian world. We are also responding to our mission of economic development by creating and consolidating jobs in Wallonia in the equestrian sector.”
