Cherry Red Airlines Limited

The company was formed by Norman Cherry in may 1929 to serve the Rottenstone mining area of Northern Saskatchewan with headquarters at Prince Albert. Service began in June 1929 and terminated June 1931 after sale of the company to Canadian Airways.

The design of the company's stamp shows the red Buhl Airsedan high-wing mono-plane flying over an airfield.

Unlike most of the previous semi-official air stamps, the 10-cent value was printed on the stamp in the upper left and right corners.
