Abstract: Progress in any form of transport, by land, sea or air, is always reflected in new ways of mail conveyance from one country to another. The very nature of the mail demands two great factors: security in conveyance and speed in delivery. These two features were kept in mind by all postal authorities before a new route was chosen to carry any mails. Malta has a long tradition of well organised postal services, both local and to the neighbouring continents. For long centuries, the sea which isolated this archipelago, had afforded an excellent connection with the surrounding shores for the transmission of our mails. The introduction of airplane opened a new era in the conveyance of mail. [excerpt]
