The Department of Posts will bring out a ‘Special Carried Cover’ to mark the special aircraft that will fly fans from Bengaluru to Chennai on July 22 viz the day of Kabali movie release.

The Karnataka Postal Circle and Chennai City Region of the department have joined hands with Air Asia for the initiative.

The Special Covers, which are usually described as ‘Philatelists’ delight’, from the Postmaster General Bengaluru will be addressed to the Postmaster General Chennai City Region. They will bear the postmarks of Bengaluru and Chennai airport post offices.

Whenever a new flight is launched, some special covers are also transported on it and they have their own philatelic value. The Air Asia aircraft is the first cine flight in the country flying exclusively between Bengaluru and Chennai to help fans watch the first day, morning show. That makes the carried cover more memorable.

The limited edition of these covers on the special flight on July 22 will be subsequently available for sale at Philatelic Bureau Bengaluru GPO and Anna Road Head Post Office, Chennai.
