About Aeropostal Post

In 1927, at the beginning of the great adventure pioneering the development of airmail (Toulouse's pioneering transport company founded by Pierre-Georges Latécoère in 1918 at Toulouse-Montaudran airport), the aerodrome of Cap Juby is founded in the vicinity, in time of escort of the lines of the airmail. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry was appointed head of the aerodrome in 1927, for 18 months. Among other things, he negotiated the liberation of the hostage pilots with the local Sahrawi / Moorish tribes, and wrote his first “Courrier sud “ novel. On September 28, 2004, the Antoine de Saint-Exupéry Museum in Tarfaya was founded by the association of Mémoire d'Aéropostale, with the support of Toulouse City Hall and Airbus. This museum was inaugurated along others by the famous aeronautical journalist Bernard Chabbert, whose father also participated in the adventure of the Aeropostale.
