Thank you Roger. Yes! I was looking at George Struble’s exhibit. Some amazing pieces to be found. I collect and exhibit Canadian Semi-Official airmail- primarily Yukon Airways. Many years ago I was at the Aerophilately show at the APS headquarters and saw a Swiss Air exhibit. I just really enjoy the designs!

Welcome to AHPS -
There are so many study areas within Swiss philately that you will never get bored. ); >)
There are many research opportunities on our web site [see above], including past issues of TELL our bi-monthly journal, and numerous exhibits where you can see what some people collect and exhibit. You might be especially interested in air mail exhibits created by George Struble.

What are you doing this summer? The sender of this card enjoyed a visit to Zermatt as I did in 1964! It's changed a little since then.

This card was mailed at the Zermatt station and processed aboard the Viège-Zermatt Régional railway, destination Paris, France.

Hello Steve -
This catalogue is used by our auction manager for Swiss airmail covers -
2013 Schweizerisches Luftpost-Handbuch - I'm not sure where you can find a copy, but it would be essential to collecting this area of covers.

Good evening. I was looking to get some information on two covers I acquired. I really like the Switzerland airmail designs and thought maybe I might collect Swiss Airmails. Is there a Swiss catalogue that lists airmail flights along with pricing, items flown? Regards, Steve.
