AIRLINE STRIKE IN COLOMBIA AND HOW IT WILL AFFECT FRESH CUT AVAILABILITY

Heather WeickumCustomer’s Corner, Flowers, Production Updates, Weekly Product Updates

Who would ever think that an airline strike in Colombia would ever have any effect on us here in Colorado. Well, when you are in the flower business, it can make a big impact. Avianca airlines is currently bracing for a pilot strike. While there are other airlines for cargo to fly, when one company such as this strikes, it will create an immediate demand for precious cargo space on other airlines. That demand can and most likely will result in significant delays or cancellations due to the volumes.
While we can’t be certain what this situation will bring, or when we might feel an impact remains to be seen. Hopefully the situation resolves itself without any impact at all.
We value all of our customers and feel that it is important to share these types of issues. We do understand that what impacts Amato’s business has an impact on our customers businesses too.
