Messaging Fees

+1-Originated Number Surcharges

The carrier-imposed surcharge fees and credits in the table below apply only to originating codes/numbers with a +1 country code, configured to a route which enables the delivery of messages to the destinations in the table below. Refer to your routing configuration and assigned rates for details. These surcharges are passed through from surcharge carriers to Aerialink customers after all applicable fees (including currency exchanges) have been applied.

When leasing a long code from Aerialink, customers may choose between default and surcharge-enabled routes for their +1-originated long codes. A customer may have any combination of these code types within their account.

  • Default Codes can deliver successfully to +1 destinations and countries without surcharge fees. If a message is sent from a Default Code to a surcharge-imposing country it will be blocked and no surcharge fees will be applied.
  • Surcharge-Enabled Codes support messaging to all countries in our reach list, and will be billed accordingly for the surcharge rates of destination countries as-applicable. All messages sent to surcharge countries via surcharge-enabled long codes will be charged the appropriate surcharge fees.

Messaging traffic to +1 destinations will always be subject to those related surcharges regardless of whether the code is configured for surcharge or non-surcharge reach. The only exception to this is for 8XX numbers which are excluded as of March 1st, 2018 from these carrier surcharge fees. For more information about 8XX reach, see the 8XX tab in the reach list downloadable here.

Aerialink updates this page monthly based on the latest information from international operators and carrier hubs. Some of these destinations will provide a credit for inbound “return” messages if there is a corresponding outbound message (see the inbound credit column). For a complete reach list of countries and carriers around the world (regardless of surcharge status), see our Delivery Reach article.
