What is an airway bill?


An airway bill (AWB) is a document that accompanies goods shipped via an air freight service. It serves as a receipt of goods for an airline as well as a contract of carriage between the shipper and carrier. The AWB is a legally binding document issued by a carrier or agent and provides details about the goods being shipped. The AWB is a standard form, distributed by IATA (International Air Transport Association).
