The threat of the Omicron variant of COVID-19 has seen countries imposing bans on travel from southern Africa. Australia has delayed its border opening to December 15 and Japan and Israel went even further, announcing bans on all foreign visitors. There is a resulting impact on airfreight capacity from different regions, especially southern Africa.
China has reduced flight frequency as part of their response where we have already started to see reduced capacity from yesterday.
The situation is quite fluid so we may see changes to flights including delays and cancellations at short notice.
Our customer service teams will keep you updated on any shipment impact due to reduced services.
