Reflecting on what is a highly-complex operation to deliver the winged wizards, a spokesman said the exercise 'has to run like clockwork to avoid disaster'.
According to Gulf News, the flight has to land after midday to help limit the impact of the sun, while on board the temperature is set to -15 degrees 'to offset the high temperatures that the mass of bees create'.
Mohammed Qazi, RAK Airport Chief Executive Officer, added: “We have been planning this operation for many months. We believe what Mr Al Najeh is doing for the industry is quite revolutionary, and we are pleased to be part of his high ambitions. UAE could become a regional leader in bee farming and organic honey production.”
