Sony is reportedly set to ship PS5’s to retailers from October using air freight to ensure that they can meet demand from consumers.
Analyst Daniel Ahmad reported that Sony are using Delta to fly around 60 flights from October to ship consoles to retailers. These flights will be filled with PS5’s going out to US Retailers and this doesn’t cover all shipping channels which means that the number is probably far higher when you take into account all of the shipping channels, countries, and companies involved.
This is great news as air freight is faster than shipping by sea; however, it will be more expensive for Sony.
Just to clarify one point. I'm not 100% certain if this is 60 flights, or 60 aircraft. But it does sound like each flight will be full.
