Larger ouitlets of Migros and COOP and Jumbo have cardboxes for sale. Do not use stuff higher than 80 cms as 82 to 86 is the maximum height of the various versions of the Boeing 737, and DC-9 / MD-80 / Embraer 170 / Embraer 190 etc even only 72 cms . And use enough cushioning material, not just outside stuff like glasses but inside as well.

Re: Carton boxes for Air Cargo

We are having an air shipment sent that will arrive in a couple of weeks. Let me know if you would like me to hold the boxes for you. The way they packed the shipment is that they put all of our things in regular sized boxes. Then they put all of the boxes on a wooden pallet and surrounded it with flat card box "walls".
