Caribbean Airlines Cargo adds capacity for Christmas peak

Caribbean Airlines Cargo announces that extra freighter services will be added to its operations for the upcoming Christmas peak season.

The company said in a statement issued Tuesday that during the period of December 2 – 24, 2019, Caribbean Airlines Cargo will increase its cargo capacity by over 100 percent with additional daily freighter flights to accommodate delivery commitments to its customers.

This increased capacity from Miami includes:

- Six weekly flights to POS (Monday to Saturday)

- Five weekly flights to KIN (Mon, Wed, Thurs, Fri, Sun)

- Two weekly flights to GEO (Wednesday and Saturday)

- Two weekly flights to BGI (Tuesday and Friday)

During the peak season customers are encouraged to book their cargo at least one week in advance, or at minimum, three days prior to the flight date.

Customers will have the option to apply “priority” status to their cargo, which will guarantee “Must Ride” shipping on a requested date. Priority shipping attracts a fee of 15 percent of the standard all in shipping rates.

A peak season surcharge of five percent of the shipping rate will also be applied to all shipments originating out of Miami (MIA), Fort Lauderdale (FLL), New York (JFK) and Toronto (YYZ).

"Caribbean Airlines Cargo continues to offer swift, reliable delivery to destinations worldwide, through its All Cargo Freighter and expansive interline agreements which facilitate priority shipping globally," the company said.
