Movement of Air Cargo

Some confusion exists in the market; what air cargo can be consigned and what cannot be consigned.

We have received the following clarification from the South African Civil Aviation Authority:

Dear Agents and Consignors,

It has come to our attention that there remains some confusion as to which cargo is permitted to operate. Please kindly be advised that the attached Directions permit the movement of air cargo. This is to clarify that air cargo in its entirety is permitted to fly both into and out of the country using the listed International Airports. 

With kind regards,

Andrew Dhlakama
Manager: Air Cargo Security
AvSec: Dangerous Goods and Cargo Security

Please refer to the Aviation Directives attached for further clarity,

Please feel free to approach the Team at Professional should you need any assistance

Thank you
