What is AIR MAIL?

AIR MAIL is a lively digital weekly for the world citizen, launched in 2019 by Graydon Carter and Alessandra Stanley.

The premise of AIR MAIL is simple: we supply you with articles on subjects both foreign and domestic—ranging from politics and the environment to art and literature, style and fashion, and high-end crime and beyond—by some of the world’s finest journalists. For the most part, these are stories you will not find anywhere else, delivered to in-boxes around the world every Saturday at six A.M.

Testimonials from a few of our readers:

“I had many paid subscriptions to content during Covid and Air Mail is one of the only one I’ve kept!”

“My most favourite online subscription. I always look forward to Saturday morning for the variety of articles—so well written. Thank you.”

“Great with Saturday morning coffee … love the design and vibe it brings when reading. It’s an escape once a week I look forward to. “

“My Saturday morning time with Air Mail is sacred—a “do not disturb” sign is posted. I read all the roster of new topics even if the topic is only remotely of interest. As a result of my keenness for Air Mail, I have given subscriptions as gifts to my favs.”
