Additional info

Gift is not an acceptable commodity description on either the consignment note or commercial invoice. A full description of goods is required.

These transit times are not guaranteed due to customs clearance requirements at destination.

These guidelines do not account for any additional public holidays in any country in the lead up to Friday 13th December.

Airline capacity in the lead up to Christmas is always at a premium. Although we do have confirmed allocations on all our core flights, the earlier that we are able to encourage customers to send their Christmas consignments the better.
