Once I sent postcards from Cyprus to the Netherlands and it took some 4 weeks to arrive. I also sent a birthday card from Germany to Spain and it took more than 3 weeks to arrive. No clue what postal workers do all day in the Mediterranean. In Italy a postal worker stole my stamp from a postcard from Turkmenistan. It was steamed off. The card arrived though :).

My mother has appalling handwriting. About three years after moving to Munich I received a postcard from her to wish me luck moving to aforementioned and the damn thing had been all over Europe, loads of crossing-outs and redirection notes!

I asked this question because of the corona virus. Do the planes

still carry the mail or does it go by ship. Normally when things go by ship

it is about 6 weeks. They wait for enough stuff to ship.

A letter was posted to me from the US on 4 April.  I received it on 6 May.  Rather says it all.  Oddly, I had 15 days from the date it was sent to respond.

I sent postcards from Egypt during a May summer holiday there a couple of years ago, they all arrived around Christmas time.

On a more current note the parcel I sent to England last Monday was delivered on Thursday, so looking good despite Brexit!;)

Your question might yield better results if you would include the vital information about the origin and the destination of your letter...

 

If - for example - its destination is a company, maybe the company is shut down atm?

I use mypostcard.com service which recently acquired postcard service of the Deutsche Post: it prints and sends the postcards, from Berlin.

 

Usually the postcard reaches the destination in 2 weeks (various countries of the northern hemisphere, the furthest is Canada), sometimes it takes 1 month due to shitty post service in the destination country. I haven't sent anything during Corona time yet.
