Japan Post has alerted us (http://www.post.japanpost.jp/int/information/2017/1215_01.html) that they have temporarily stopped accepting SAL-class shipments to France, Spain, Netherlands, Ukraine, Algeria, and Gibraltar, due to serious delays being experienced by Air France Cargo and KLM Cargo at Paris Charles du Gaulle Airport and Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.
As a result, HLJ.com has removed SAL-class shipping options to these countries during the temporarily suspension. EMS-class packages are still able to be sent.
Our customers' SAL Small Packet, SAL Registered, and SAL Parcel packages that are affected by this sudden suspension of postal service will be held here at HobbyLink Japan until SAL service resumes to these countries. If you have a SAL-class package being held here and would prefer that we go ahead and ship it by EMS, please contact us.
We apologize for the inconvenience, and look forward to offering SAL shipping options again soon.
