I’m an absolute fan of vintage designs, and while “googling” something I can’t really recall, I came across some wonderful vintage posters of European airlines and thought I’d share them with you guys. For this post I’ll start off with European airline companies and continue on with American airline companies next week.
KLM Royal Dutch Airlines
Being the oldest airline in the world still operating under its original name, I couldn’t avoid putting a few posters from this company.
For over 7O years Air France served as France’s primary national flag carrier before merging with KLM in 2003. Today it serves over 32 destinations in France and operates worldwide scheduled passenger and cargo services to 151 destinations worldwide.
Germany’s flag carrier, Lufthansa is also the largest airline in Europe in terms of overall passengers carried.
Belgium’s national airline from 1923 to 2001, Sabena filed bankruptcy in 2001 to form the new SN Brussels Airline.
The United Kingdom’s flag carrier, the British Airways board, was established in 1971 and took control of BOAC (British Overseas Airways Corporation), BEA (British European Airways) and two smaller regional companies, Cambrian Airways and Northeast Airlines.
