Airlift Mail is a special service that provides air transportation

for parcels on a space-available basis. Officials advise that

packages sent via PAL must not exceed 30 pounds in weight or 60

inches in length and girth combined.

Parcels

paid for at the Space-Available rate are transported domestically by

surface and then to overseas destinations by air on a space-available

basis. The maximum weight and size limits are 15 pounds and 60 inches

in length and girth combined.

For

letters and packages sent outside the United States but not to
