Airfreight Situation in China

We’ve been advised that several airlines in China have cut their services to Australia with China Eastern, China Southern and Xiamen Air all cutting or reducing their cargo flights for some reason. This has severely impacted the available space and capacity to Australia, as most passenger services are still not operating as yet either. Therefore, the airfreight rates from China and several other countries in Asia have risen significantly due to this reduced capacity and also long delays are now being experienced trying to get airfreight bookings with the few remaining carriers still operating to Australia.
