Book your motorcycle transport in good time: To make sure that approval from the authorities for you to use your motorcycle in the U.S. can be issued in time, you must book at least one month before the flight.

We will collect your motorcycle about 10 days before the flight so that it will be ready for you when you arrive in the U.S.
Delivery: To the cargo stations in Chicago, Los Angeles and Orlando.
Current security regulations in the U.S. state that motorcycles belonging to private persons may only be shipped using our cargo planes.

The aim is to extend this service to other cargo airports in the U.S. as soon as possible.

What does the motorcycle transport process look like?
After telephone consultation and booking, the preparatory phase begins.
During the booking process, you specify the desired route, further details about the motorcycle and the desired start date of the tour. The myAirCargo team will create all necessary documents with you.
After the collection date and time have been arranged, the motorcycle will be collected from you or a trusted dealer of your choice.
