Temporary Air Carrier Supplement updates

Temporary Air Carrier Supplements currently apply to some of our Business Contract products, to five destinations around the world. These supplements are subject to change, as our overseas transit and delivery costs are variously affected by the availability and cost of air capacity.

From 3 January 2023, temporary air carrier supplements will no longer be applied to these five destinations.

We continue to keep these supplements under review and advise of changes here on this page. If you would like regular updates, please register below.
