Transportation is being impacted by the current India-Pakistan conflict. Our MIQ India team advised that a short-term impact to business and freight capacity is likely, especially in Delhi. The MIQ India team has shared the following Information:
- India is on high alert.
- Pakistan air space is blocked for most flights. International flights to and from Delhi are being re-routed, adding almost 3 hours of flying time to certain parts of Europe and almost 2 hours for Dubai and the Middle East.
- The reductions in air capacity could result in additional re-routings, potential backlogs of cargo, increased need for fuel for longer routes, and possible increases in air rates.
MIQ will continue to monitor any service delays and/or routing changes that can impact transit times. We will provide updates as they are available.
