The air waybill is the equivalent of the ocean bill of lading but for air transport. However, the air waybill cannot be negotiable; they may never be consigned “to order of shipper.” An air waybill is the document that controls the routing of the exporter’s cargo while it is in the hands of the air carrier or a consolidator.

An air waybill should include:

  • The name and contact information for the exporter and the ultimate consignee.
  • Carrier information.
  • The airport of departure and routing.
  • The description, weight and dimensions of the cargo.
  • Freight charges.
  • The relevant anti-diversion clause.
