February 2021 Stamp Magazine page 20.

Does anyone know why these stamps were issued? Is it connected to the increasing cost of airfreight due to the Corona virus airline cut backs? Also, am I right in thinking there are now just two rates (£1.70 & £2.55) for ordinary letters worldwide and two rates for large letters £3.25 (Europe) & £4.20 (rest of the world), in both cases up to 100g in weight ?

there is £1.45 for International Economy too up to 20g.

See for the current rate booklet.

I can't comment on your reference to Feb p20 as I am in a low delivery area and have not received the magazine yet! Assuming however you mean the £1.70, £3.25 and £4.20, these are International Standard to 20g (Europe to 100g) and International Large Letter to Europe and outside Europe respectively.

Thank you Paul, I was referring to the £1.70, £3.25 & £4.20 stamps. I completely missed the International Economy rate £1.45 when I originally looked up the Royal Mail prices web site, don't know how I overlooked it!
