Air Transport


Transport by air is a good choice if you need fast and efficient way to get your belongings to where you want them. Unless located in rural areas, airports are very accessible and most, bigger commercial air lines, fly regularly to almost all international destinations.

Air transport is also has different packing requirements, the size and the way your household goods will be packed has to fit the specific requirements of each airline ( not too high not too wide etc…). Most likely your goods will have to be packed by the moving company you will employ.

Be selective in what you choose to be transported by air and what you choose to be eventually transported by another means. Choose belongings that you may require immediately and that you require to be there fast. Other bigger things, like household furniture, if you can do without for a few weeks, then you might want to choose to move them in another way then by air transportation.
