International Priority Airmail (IPA)

International Priority Airmail (IPA) is a USPS commercial service for volume mailings of all First Class Mail International postcards, letters, and large envelopes (flats) and small packets.  IPA shipments are typically flown to the foreign destinations and entered into that country’s air or surface priority mail system.  As a result, worldwide delivery is 3-10 days as US First Class Airmail at bulk mail prices.

The maximum weight for an individual IPA item is as follows:

a.     Letter-size item: 3.5 ounces.

b.    Flat-size item: 17.6 ounces.

c.     Package-size item: 4.4 pounds.
