Airfreight – Aussie Borders Due To Reopen

 

Australian borders are effectively due to reopen for passengers next week, which is expected to bring a boost for air freight capacity in the coming weeks.

Australian prime minister – Scott Morrison – has confirmed new rules will apply to Covid border controls from Monday 21st February 2022.

The new regulations will allow for fully vaccinated passengers to enter the country with a visa, but without the need for testing or prior exemptions.

Australia has imposed one of the world’s strictest border control regimes since the pandemic began two years ago, as highlighted in the recent entry refusal of tennis star Novak Djokovic.

With such strict regulations in place, passengers and flights have fallen to around 10-15% of pre-Covid levels, which has significantly impacted the air freight capacity available both to and from Australia.

The new regulations should see an increase in the demand for passengers and flights down under and a boost for the amount of space available.

The news also comes as a boost for Atlantic Pacific, as Australia and New Zealand have become one of our most prominent regions, where we operate an extensive range of ocean and air freight services.
