Airports in Dubai & Bangkok face Temporary Air Cargo Suspensions


Global Cargo Chaos Escalates: Red Sea Crisis triggers disruptions in Dubai and Bangkok. Dubai Air Cargo saw 48-Hour Suspension amidst soaring volumes; Dnata implements Import Ban to address buildups. Meanwhile, Bangkok Flight Services (BFS) responds to surging Asian Demand with a temporary Import Ban at Bangkok Airport (BKK), echoing Dubai's move. BFS cites unprecedented Cargo Volumes, a shift from Sea to Air due to the Red Sea Crisis, and Pre-Chinese New Year surge. Dnata's Import Embargo in Dubai aligns with BFS, prompted by a significant surge in general cargo.

While Emirates SkyCargo remains unaffected, Indian Airlines downplay halt as temporary. Red Sea-Driven shift sparks Logjam at Dubai's Transshipment Hub, creating global strain on Air Cargo Networks. A 62% surge in Air Cargo Volumes from Vietnam to Europe adds urgency. India, a major perishable shipper to Dubai, faces setback with the inbound suspension; Airfreight rates soar 30-40%, creating global supply chain challenges. Sri Lanka and Bangladesh witness chaotic Air Cargo flows amidst high demand and limited capacity. 

Freighters' Limited repositioning on Busy Routes results in Price Hikes. Qatar Airways (QR) anticipates impact, warning customers about the BKK Embargo lasting until February 18. BFS faces backlog, waives Storage Charges, aiming to resolve Limited Warehouse Space Challenges within the week. Temporary Import Ban excludes perishables, pharma, dangerous goods, and other specialized freight.
