Canada Stamps - C - Air Mail
Canada Air mail stamps were issued between September 21 1928 and September 16 1946. Four Air Mail Special Delivery Stamps were also issued. Many countries started issuing airmail stamps as transporting of mail by air started gaining popularity. Postal administrations charged a premium for Airmail service and so special airmail stamps were issued to cover the higher rate. The honor of issuing the first airmail stamp goes to Italy in 1917 for the first official airmail between Rome and Turin.
