Hongkong Post today (May 7) announced the need to suspend Speedpost service to Singapore from tomorrow (May 8) owing to the substantial reduction in flight frequencies by airlines, which has resulted in a nearly complete inability to provide any air traffic capacity to cope with the volume of Speedpost items conveyed to Singapore. Hongkong Post had previously announced the service suspension of airmail to Singapore on May 4. Members of the public may consider using surface mail for posting items to Singapore as the frequency of the shipping schedule to the destination has been increased to once per week. It is estimated that the journey time for posting through surface mail to Singapore would take about five days.
|Destination||Types of services currently available||Estimated journey time for surface mail|
|Asia||Singapore||All surface mail postal services||5 days|
