The special cover package includes a RM2 preprinted stamp featuring the elements of maritime and aerospace assets like ships, helicopters and fighter and commercial jets.

“This biennial exhibition does Malaysia proud as it promotes the country in the global arena. Pos Malaysia honours this prestigious international event that focuses on the maritime and aerospace industry.

“Souvenir hunters and philatelic lovers should not miss buying this collection,” said Pos Malaysia Covering Group chief executive officer Azlan Shahrim.

Pos Malaysia, to mark the occasion, will also use a special postmark – ‘Pameran Antarabangsa Maritim dan Aeroangkasa Langkawi Ke-13, 17.03.2015 Langkawi’ on March 17.

“Our special postmark is set to appear on mail sent from LIMA site to anywhere in the world on Tuesday,” he added.
