Air Letters

Lightweight for air mail

The air letter or aerogram, aérogramme, aerogramme is made from a lightweight paper and as is the usual case, the Bermuda Post Office issue them prepaid.

The Universal Postal Union adopted the term aérogramme, the French word for air letter, during the 1951–52 13th Postal Union Congress held in Brussels and all countries inscribe this on their air mail lettersheets except for the United Kingdom which still uses the term Air Letter.
