HC Deb 03 May 1937 vol 323 cc805-6W
Mr. Wells

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is now in a position to give facilities to the public to send mails to the United States of America by airship, in view of the fact that the published time table for the German airship for 1937 provides for 18 flights each way across the North Atlantic from 3rd May to November, the average time for crossing last year from Frankfurt to Lakehurst being under 64 hours and from Lakehurst to Frankfurt under 52 hours?

Major Tryon

I am proposing to offer this facility to the public and particulars will be announced shortly. The air postage payable will be 2s. 9d. per half ounce.
