Transport: Schedule

1 minute read

Last June Pan American and last month Imperial Airways launched transatlantic airmail services between Port Washington, L.I. and Europe. Both have been hightailing along (with few exceptions) right on schedule, despite the war jitters that convulsed shipping (see p. 40). Their timetable:

Pan American: (Eastbound) leaves Port Washington Wednesday 12 noon, E.S.T., arrives Marseille Friday 3 p.m., G.C.T.; leaves Port Washington Saturday 7:30 a.m., E.S.T., arrives Southampton Sunday 1 p.m., G.C.T. (Westbound) leaves Marseille Sunday 8 a.m., G.C.T., arrives Port Washington Tuesday 7 a.m., E.S.T.; leaves Southampton Wednesday 12 noon, G.C.T., arrives Port Washington Thursday 3 p.m., E.S.T.

Imperial: (Eastbound) leaves Port Washington Wednesday 3 p.m., E.S.T., arrives Southampton Friday 2 p.m., G.C.T. (Westbound) leaves Southampton Saturday 1 p.m., G.C.T., arrives Port Washington Sunday 6 p.m., E.S.T.*

*Port Washington airmails for both lines close about four hours before departure; Southampton one hour, Marseille two and one-half hours before departure. Rates: 30¢ a half-ounce.
