International air transportation is a fast way of cargo transportation by means of air delivery, which has had a significant impact on world trade. If it were not for air transportation, perishable products like seafood or fresh flowers could never appear on the shelves. Cargo delivery by air is considered the most expeditious way of international cargo delivery, since the transportation time is ten times less than transportation by sea, rail or road.
International air cargo transportation is used by both state-owned companies and private individuals for the air delivery of goods from the United States of America, China, Japan, Australia and other countries of the world.

Features of air transportation
International air cargo transportation is mainly used for the transportation of expensive perishable goods. The high cost of this delivery method is justified by its short terms. When choosing air transportation from China, the United States, Europe or other countries, you need to consider the following factors:
- the dimensions of the transported cargo should not exceed the size of the cargo hatch, and the weight of one cargo space – 200 kg;
- options for using other types of transport – in some cases it is more expedient to transport goods by road or by sea;
- the distance of the recipient’s location from the airport.
International cargo transportation by air has a number of significant drawbacks:
- high cost;
- dependence on weather conditions;
- lack of airports in many regions;
- the transported goods must be delivered to the departure airport and consider the method of delivery to the destination from the arrival airport.
