Letter Rates 2008-2012

Introduction

Different rates for stamped and franked airmail letters were first introduced on 2nd April 2007. In the 2008 revision the two-zone division of world destinations outside Europe was scrapped in favour of a single "Rest of World" zone. This division was reintroduced in 2012, at which point the rates for printed papers and small packets above 100g up to the maximum weight (5kg for printed papers, 2kg for other items) became identical to the corresponding letter rates - see the separate listings for Europe, Zone 1, and Zone 2.
