Ukraine situation update

3rd March 2022

As a leading provider of global time-critical transport solutions, we are constantly monitoring the developing situation in Ukraine. In order to keep both our operational teams and customers up-to-date with the availability of all modes of transport, here is the latest update on the Ukraine land borders and air, road and rail transports:

Air charter AIR CHARTER
European charter flights are in the main unaffected, although, some Ukrainian operators report some aircraft have remained at their homebase.

 

Air freight AIR FREIGHT
The EU & the UK has closed its airspace to Russian owned, Russian registered or Russian controlled aircraft (including chartered aircraft). The European President, Ursula von der Leyen, stated “They won’t be able to land in, take off or overfly the territory of the EU, including the private jets of oligarchs.” In response, Russia has banned overflying of their air space.

Finnair, Virgin & Air France suspend flights to some Asian destinations as they decide on rerouting, Undoubtedly, this will add pressure to an already difficult market, especially taking in to account the reduction in flights from Air Bridge.

Industry news indicate air freight rates are likely to climb as reported here by the Loadstar: theloadstar.com/air-freight-rates-expected-to-soar-as-russias-airbridgecargo-exits-europe”
