 For the first time, the World's First Private Airport Lounge for Animals has had horse passengers. Jackson, Polly and Sandy, Irish sport horses who were travelling with Peen Bloodstock, were the horses who enjoy the privileges of the private lounge for the first time.

Arriving from Belgium on the 1st of September and were released from quarantine on the 4th of September. The Animal Reception Terminal has posted a video of the horses enjoy some of the luxury services provided by the lounge such as a disinfectant hoof wash and some after flight hay:

 

The one-of-a-kind lounge, named " The ARK", cost an almighty £49.5 million to construct ,situated in the New York JFK airport, and has seen a multitude of creatures such as goats, pigs and even turtles! Now they can add horses to the list of animals they have held. 

The ARK has said they have “essential resting stalls in a spacious, modern environment” for their equestrian customers and even are home to a veterinary clinic, blood laboratory and even an animal groomers.

John J Cuticelli Jr., company founder and chairman, stated:“Our goal is to create a more efficient and safe process by reducing the need for additional travel and offering trained animal care staff immediately pre- and post-flight,”

The horse passengers can expect the appropriate food, water and care while their travel documents are processed and even have climate-controlled stables, with bedding and natural light, and the building is designed to allow planes to taxi directly to its loading docks. There's neigh-ver a better time to fly!
