2021

As this year is well underway, our focus is on new beginnings, with a fresh, positive outlook on the year to come.

We continued to deliver and collect your parcels Internationally and Nationally during 2020, in and out of lockdowns and various tiers. We supported our corporate and private clients to enable their businesses to run seamlessly by delivering back and forth between offices and remote workers throughout the world.  We ensured that TV remote crews and single reporters were fully equipped with broadcast equipment, PPE and even flap jackets to cover the ever- changing news around the globe, along with making sure that frontline workers were fully protected doing their invaluable work.

These are just a few examples of Air Courier International’s dedication and tenacity when it comes to finding solutions to unprecedented challenges, whilst supporting our customers with first class services at all times.  All this was achieved by constantly and swiftly adapting to challenges facing the International and UK shipping industry throughout these unprecedented times, working within ever changing guidance and guidelines and restrictions issued by the UK and other Governments, always looking out for the safety of our workforce and our customers

Given the challenges facing us in 2020, our Social Media representation took a back seat, and has been somewhat quiet!  With that in mind, Air Courier International are focusing on making our virtual presence clearer, more informative and impactful this year.  From next week all social media platforms will be updated regularly with blog posts, with a minimum of 1 quarterly newsletter and consistent Instagram, twitter and Facebook updates.  These will include regular shipping updates and changes, Brexit News, COVID-19 updates, charitable connections and donations as well the more light-hearted news such as Shipping offers and promotions, and maybe the odd funny picture found on our travels. 

Our Website too is undergoing a facelift and reconstruction making it even more user friendly. Tracking and booking will be upgraded, and any information that you need will be more easily accessible.  But of course, we will still be here to answer your call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to resolve any queries you may have.

Make sure to follow us on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter @aircourier across all Social Media Platforms.  Please check our website for blogs and remember to sign up to our newsletter to keep you well informed and updated on all things Air Courier International.

We are, like most, happy to see the end of 2020 but are now prepared and ready for whatever challenges we face in 2021.

Stay Safe.

Fraudulent Use of Air Courier International’s Name

It has come to our attention that the Air Courier International name and brand (along with that of many other courier companies) has been used in a number of online scams in order to solicit money from vulnerable members of the public. We are appalled at the behaviour of the individuals and groups responsible, and reiterate that they have no connection with Air Courier International Ltd.

It is good practice to verify the identity of any person you contact online before parting with sensitive information or money. A google search of Air Courier International will show you our official page on the third entry. Our homepage of www.aircourieruk.com is the only one that we use, and any emails from any other domain are not from us.

We will never ask for money to be sent to us by Western Union or any other untraceable source. In fact, most of the business we conduct is UK based and therefore we are exceptionally unlikely to contact you for payment unless you have had dealings with us already and you are aware of exactly what we are requesting payment for.

This bulletin does not affect the obligation of a consignee to pay shipping, duty VAT or similar charges that legitimately incurred and are properly payable at the time of or after delivery.

Air Courier International cannot accept any responsibility for any costs, charges or payments made as a result of fraudulent activity. If you have been the victim of such a fraud, or have received a fraudulent email purporting to represent Air Courier International or any other legitimate courier company you can report it to the police via www.actionfraud.police.uk

Another 20 year veteran!

Today we congratulate our UK Operations Manager Lee Guy on 20 years of service with Air Courier International.  He is the 2nd person this year to complete a double decade with us, and like Nicky, his contribution has been invaluable over that time.

Thank you Lee and here’s to the next 20!
