Arpin International Group would like to share important information about the major airlines’ current situation and their ability to accommodate air shipments between Australia and the United States.
Currently, we’ve learned from Delta, American Airlines, Air Canada, and Hawaiian Airlines that due to heavy backlogs, they are not accepting any air freight bookings through mid-December with a possibility of carrying over into early January 2022. Presently, United is accepting, within reason, shipments which are bulk loadable with a maximum weight per piece of 30KG.
Consequently, as the holiday travel demand begins to ramp up and government restrictions continue to impact flight schedules, we expect to see extended delays and all service guarantees suspended.
Your Arpin service team will continue to keep you well advised on any change to shipment costs, booking possibilities, etc. If you have a specific question, please reach out to your Arpin International Group representative for detailed information.
