Air Partner encourages companies to book air cargo transport in advance due to limitations caused by COVID-19

Air Partner has announced it is appealing to companies to book advance freight arrangements amidst capacity limitations due to COVID-19, the company said.

Air Partner released updates on cargo trends and availability, citing the development of the rapidly spreading coronavirus pandemic. Air Partner provides freight customers with full access to any type of cargo aircraft, as well as flight options throughout the US, Europe, Asia, the Middle East and beyond.

The company said it is seeing a spike in air freight service requests as many commercial flights are being grounded and at a time when Chinese industrial production is restarting after a month-long shutdown.

During the coronavirus outbreak, Air Partner has seen a large increase in urgent freight requests from companies seeking to transport a number of different commodities between North America, Asia and Europe. Most recently, Air Partner transported a surplus of hand sanitizer and hygiene supplies from the US to China as corporations and businesses must comply with sanitation regulation standards. All permits, loading and compulsory processes were handled by Air Partner to ensure smooth running of the operation. The dedicated freight team was on-site for loading and coordination of the aircraft.

With a global network of offices, Air Partner is able to provide 24/7 dedicated support to ensure cargo arrives safely, securely, on time and on budget. In addition, customers can take advantage of worldwide empty legs for cost savings on one-way charter flights.

Air Partner is a global aviation services group providing aircraft charter and aviation safety & security solutions to industry, commerce, governments and private individuals, across civil and defense organisations.
