Air Freight

Tudor International is the UK’s premier independent air freight forwarder. We have over 25 years’ experience in the excess baggage market and as a result we have developed strong relationships with the world’s leading airlines.

These days most of our customers choose to send their excess baggage across the world by air freight. There are many reasons why people opt for this service, which we have noted below:


Air freight is by far the fastest and most convenient method to send your excess baggage overseas. Most sea freight shipments can take over a month to arrive while air freight shipments take around one week.


Tudor International Freight can send your belongings to over 6,500 airports worldwide. For some destinations air freight is the only option. For example, many countries in central Africa and the Balkans are landlocked. Sea freight and road freight services simply don’t exist to these countries.


Air freight shipments are required to pass through strict security screening. These tightly managed airport controls reduce exposure to cargo theft and damage.


Flights can be delayed by weather, which could cause a delay to your shipment. If we are unable to move your belongings on the intended flight due to bad weather, we will more than likely be able to find a flight a day or two later. Sea freight carriers tend to have a weekly / fortnightly schedule meaning that the overall delay to your shipment could be much longer.


Once you have made an air freight booking with Tudor International Freight you will receive full flight details for your shipment so you can track your excess baggage online from origin to destination.


Air freight is not as expensive as you may think. In some cases, air freight is actually the cheaper alternative to sea freight. We also find that destination charges at the port of arrival tend to be higher than at airports of arrival.
