2016: ripresa del servizio postale diretto USA - Cuba

Messaggio da Alessandro Guerani » 20 marzo 2016, 19:42

Per chi è appassionato di USA ma anche di Posta Aerea credo che questa notizia possa interessare (da Linn's Stamps Newshttp://www.linns.com/news/us-stamps-pos ... -cuba.html):

For the first time in more than 50 years, the United States Postal Service is transporting mail directly to Cuba. The Postal Service announced March 17 that it has resumed mail service to the island nation after President John F. Kennedy suspended it in 1963 at the height of the Cold War.
The change in mail delivery policy comes after President Barack Obama restored U.S. ties with Cuba late in 2014, and just days before the president will travel to Havana for a two-day visit.
“The U.S. Postal Service is pleased to participate in the historic direct transportation of mail service with Cuba,” said Postmaster General and CEO Megan J. Brennan. “Moving letter mail and package volume directly between our countries will improve service for businesses and consumers.”
The first USPS mail dispatch to Cuba includes a letter from Obama to 76-year-old Ileana R. Yarza, a fan of the president who had written to him previously and invited him over for coffee. A special “USA-Cuba Direct” postmark dated March 16 was used to hand-cancel the president’s mail, according to a report by USA Today.

Non so se ci saranno altre lettere con questo annullo speciale, ma sarebbe interessanti informarsi:
A White House photo of the president’s letter, illustrated nearby, shows the letter with a large addressed flat envelope franked with three 2013 nondenominated Earth global forever stamps (Scott 4740) and postmarked with the special cancel.
