Aeropostale - Servico Postal Aereo Vintage Travel Poster
Aeropostale Europa - Africa - Sul America Vintage Print. View of Rio de Janeiro.
Aeropostale was not an airline but rather a pioneering air mail service that played a crucial role in the early days of aviation. The term "Aeropostale" is a combination of "aero," referring to aviation, and "post," indicating mail or postal services. The company was formally known as "Compagnie Générale Aéropostale."
Aeropostale was founded in 1918 by Pierre-Georges Latécoère, a French industrialist. The company was established to facilitate airmail delivery between France and South America.
Aeropostale began operations with flights connecting Toulouse, France, to Barcelona, Spain. The network expanded over time to include other European and South American destinations.
Some notable figures associated with Aeropostale include Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, who was a pioneering aviator and author. He worked as a pilot for Aeropostale and drew on his experiences for his later literary works.
The early years of Aeropostale were marked by significant challenges, including the harsh conditions of early aviation and the vast distances involved in transatlantic flights. However, the company also contributed to the development of aviation technology and navigation methods.
Aeropostale's legacy is often celebrated for its contributions to the development of international air mail services. The airline played a vital role in establishing early air routes and demonstrating the feasibility of long-distance airmail delivery.
In 1933, Aeropostale merged with several other French aviation companies to form Air France.
