BRUCE HAYNES: WESTERN AUSTRALIA: AIRMAIL 1911-1939
One of the earliest multi-stage long haul scheduled airmail routes in the world commenced in 1921 as an intrastate route from Geraldton to Derby. Some interstate and international airmail, including transit airmail, became available to Western Australians in 1929 when the Perth to Adelaide and London to Karachi routes were opened. Extensions of the routes beyond Derby, Adelaide and Karachi in the 1930s made airmail more readily available but the new route from Perth to Wiluna had little use as most destinations had adequate rail service.
