Overseas mail delivery delays


The Bermuda Post Office (BPO) advising of the following update regarding overseas mail.

A BPO spokesperson said, “Our valued customers have continued to enquire about overseas mail and we hope that the public will find the following information to be of assistance. It is widely known that there have been major global disruptions to the postal networks, such as airlines and shipping, due to COVID-19. This has resulted in a disruption to the delivery of all international mail. Regrettably, the timely delivery of outbound international mail from Bermuda to locations within the US, Canada, UK and Europe still cannot be guaranteed at this time.

“Regarding incoming and outbound mail to Bermuda, please note:

US Mail/United States Postal Service:

? Now that the L. F. Wade International Airport has reopened and commercial flights have resumed, some mail from the US to Bermuda has begun to arrive on island.

United Kingdom - Royal Mail:

? Mail transport from the UK, Europe, etc. will be transported by British Airways twice weekly with effect from July 17th, until further notice.

? The BPO will transport mail destined for the UK, Europe effective July 17th.

Canada - Canada Post:

? Mail transport from Canada will resume on Air Canada at the end of July/early August once flight schedules which are still subject to delays and rescheduling have become more stable.
