Excellent condition / mint. Original Trans World Airline (TWA) was a New York based airline that operated from 1926 to 2001. The airline had a reputation for luxurious service, innovative technology, and swanky airplanes. TWA offered service to 140 destinations in 45 countries. The airline was also known for its James Bond themed planes and was the inspiration for the film Goldfinger. However, the original TWA suffered several high profile disasters and went bankrupt in 1990. In 1996, Howard Hughes’ heirs sold TWA to an Italian company named Fin Cos Ltd. In 2001, Fin Cos merged with another company to create the modern-day Italian carrier Volare International Airlines. Even though the original TWA is no longer around to tell its story, many passengers still share their insights on social media platforms like Twitter and Instagram. TWA (Trans World Airlines) was formed in 1924 as Transcontinental & Western Air. The airline's first route was New York to Los Angeles, soon followed by multiple National routes. The airline expanded to serve Europe, the Middle East and Asia after WWII when the company was under the control of Howard Hughes, owner from 1939 until 1961. Hughes was a dominant force in expanding and promoting the routes flown by his company. The economy was vastly improving, and travels through air for business and pleasure increased too. Posters were a key element to promoting this form of travel and TWA. The airline started a decline in the 1970s that ended up in a third bankruptcy that caused their acquisition by American Airlines in 2001. The airline operated in 132 destinations worldwide and had a fleet size of 190. This is an Original Lithograph Vintage Poster; it is not a reproduction.
