Linhas Aereas de Moçambique: Maputo-Lisbon-Berlin
Linhas Aereas de Moçambique undertook a series of dedicated moves linking Maputo to Europe, particularly Lisbon, its metropole, but also Berlin, Paris, and reportedly Copenhagen. This first flight cover celebrates the carrier's Maputo-Lisbon-Berlin service in 1963, which was likely a political choice during Mozambique's socialist era, and there for most surely terminated at Schönefeld (which the DDR stamp confirms). Unfortunately, today no wide-body jets fly LAM's colors, and its network is limited to the immediate subregion.
