Royal Mail Service Bulletin

Alert: Due to the volcanic eruption in Iceland and the impact on air travel and shipments please note the following:

International Shipments
International shipments due to leave or enter the UK are affected by the closure of airspace, resulting in a likely delay in service. Shipments leaving the UK for Germany, France, Belgium and The Netherlands are being transferred to road services where possible. Shipments going to other parts of the world are being held until flights resume. There are no packages entering the UK by air at the present.

Shipment Deliveries & Collections
Shipment deliveries and collections are unaffected by this and will continue to take place today across the UK.

In Scotland, Northern Ireland as well as parts of South West and North East England, shipment deliveries may be lighter than usual as transporting packages to and from some parts of the UK will take longer than usual using alternatives to air transport. Additionally, in other areas of the UK, there may be small delays to deliveries as a result of this situation.
