As you’ll be well-aware every airline operating into N.Z has reduced or stopped flights all together.
Capacity has dropped 85%.
‘Spot Rating’ is now the modus for the available space, ex all-points of the globe.
Any airline contracts we had are ‘on-hold’ or will need to be re-negotiated once things get back to normal.
For the foreseeable future we now need to apply to the airline to get both (a.) rates (b.) space on a shipment by shipment basis.
Having an exact shipping date is vital.
It is inevitable whilst border restrictions are in-place, planes stop flying etc. rates will increase over this period.
