What’s happening with Air-Freight?
Unless it’s considered critical e.g. medical gear and you are willing to pay a Kings Ransom.
The only cab on the rank left are Singapore Airlines and there’s no way they can cover demand.
By-in-large it’s running per normal.
With a few glitches like vessel re-scheduling.
Put it this way, if sea-freight was a four-cylinder car?
It’s running on three.
I’ve got something about to arrive. What about deliveries and storage options?
We need to know whether to deliver or hold awaiting things to settle down?
Be sure to let us know your situation.
Everyone will be different.
If we don’t hear from you, we’ll automatically place a hold on the consignment/container.

Singapore Airlines Announce Suspension of Flights into Christchurch from 29/03
Last flight: 29th March
Possible return date to be reviewed: 01st May
This is a major, major blow to South Island importers/exporters alike.
From a company perspective we use Singapore Airlines (SQ) extensively.
Our succesful weekly London-Christchurch service immediately springs to mind.
SQ will retain a pressence in N.Z with reduced flights into Auckland.
Airlines aren’t driven by freight revenue, though.
It’s ‘bums on seats’ that dictate where they go and how often.
Those bums aren’t there at the moment.
We all know why.
