Air Cargo Prohibition Update

The prohibition on air cargo originating from, or transiting through, Syria, Egypt, Bangladesh, Yemen and Somalia that came into force on the 19th December 2015 remains in force.

We reported last month that the ban has hit Bangladesh exporters hard, especially those in the garment industry.

The ban, that now enters it’s third month, pushes suppliers and buyers to the longer method of moving freight – via sea.

The Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development advises, at this stage, there is no set date for the prohibition to be lifted.
