Express Shipping by Air

There are many advantages to choosing air charter services for your most urgent freight. With an air freight charter you get:

  • Exclusive use of an aircraft optimized to meet your shipment’s needs. We use our industry expertise to match your shipment to the right air carrier with the rightsized aircraft. If you only need a Cessna, we won’t arrange for your freight to travel on a Boeing 747.
  • The fastest delivery possible. Sending your freight by air is the quickest shipment method available, period.
  • Remote origin and/or destination capability. Dirt airstrip or no airstrip the only way in or out? Many of the air carriers we work with can easily handle rugged conditions with little or no support infrastructure necessary. Through AirFreight.com’s global network of air carriers, we can arrange to ship to and from anywhere on the planet.
  • Complete shipment flexibility. Your freight may start at a major airport hub but end its journey on a grass field. With virtually no limitations on shipment size, we arrange all of those transition details seamlessly so you don’t have to.
  • In-Flight Tracking. You’ll know where your freight is – always, at all times.
  • Concierge Level Customer Service. You’ll work with one dedicated agent from start to finish. Your agent will make sure you understand your options and costs, then work with you until your freight is safely where it needs to be.
  • Around the clock availability, support and coverage. Your freight can’t wait for regular business hours and neither do we. AirFreight.com is available to support your air freight charter needs 24/7/365 with our broker services.

How It Gets There

We'll arrange for the ideal charter freight option to your specific needs. With so many aircraft available for dedicated carrier charter work through the air carriers, we are comfortable arranging for your freight to be transported on any type of aircraft, from a Cessna 406 to a Boeing 747-400F freighter.

Depending on your freight’s final destination, it may fly on more than one type to get there, first landing at a major airport on a long-haul aircraft and from there heading out on a local short-haul charter.

These are just a few of the aircraft the air carriers in AirFreight.com’s network use for freight charter services. If you have a specific aircraft type in mind, your agent will work with you to understand your options.

Short-Haul – Light Weight

Despite smaller freight capacities and shorter ranges, these primarily turboprop aircraft can get in and out where the heavies simply cannot go. Some have rough or unprepared field capabilities and can land on very short landing strips – which is an advantage if your worksite is in a remote location with little infrastructure. While slower than jets, these turboprops still cruise many times faster than any land-based transport.

Examples include:

  • Piper PA-31
  • Metro II
  • Pilatus PC-12
  • Cessna 406
  • Embraer Bandeirante
  • Metro III
  • Dassault Falcon 20
  • Shorts SD 360

Medium-Haul – Mid-Weight

Encompassing the advantages of greater speed, payloads and range, medium haul aircraft are capable and robust workhorses. Many are common sights at airports around the world, especially Boeing and Airbus freighter conversions of commercial models. While dominated by jet aircraft, there are larger turboprops as well. Fast, efficient and effective, medium haul aircraft bridge the capability gap between the heavies and light weights.

  • Antonov An-26
  • Convair CV-580
  • McDonnell Douglas DC-9 15F
  • Antonov An-12
  • Boeing 737-300F
  • Boeing 737-400F
  • Boeing 727-200F
  • Airbus A300-A600F

Long-Haul – Heavy Weight

Long-haul aircraft are at the opposite end of the capability spectrum. They carry the most cargo by weight and volume over the longest distances, and are especially critical for international freight charters. One of the most well-known long-haul freighters is the Boeing 747. It is the only in-production freighter with a nose door, allowing outsized cargo and improved turnaround times. Coupled with an exceptional freight pallet handling system, it has more capacity than almost every other freighter in the world. When your freight absolutely has to “go big or go home,” long-haul aircraft provide the lift and reach you need.

Examples include:

  • McDonnell Douglas DC-8 71/73F
  • McDonnell Douglas DC-10F
  • Boeing 767-200/300F
  • Boeing 777-200F
  • Boeing 747-400F
