"Lausanne Airport" poster in perfect condition, showing the AC-11 (HB-KIM) taking off, the Lake of Geneva and the Alps in the back-ground.
In 1910 the first Aircraft landed on the field called "La Blécherette" over Lausanne. One year later the place was nominated "Airport" and the first "Lausanne Aviation journey" took place in June. A postal service between Lausanne and Zürich was opened in 1919. Passengers followed the year after.
During the twenties regular direct lines liked Lausanne to the main European cities.
In 1930, to support its Airport, the city of Lausanne bought one AC-4 Aircraft, built by Alfred Comte, a Swiss constructor. In 1931, followed the AC-11 (HB-KIM) visible on this beautiful poster. This identification helped us to precise the date of this extremely rare document.
