"Fly Swissair to North America"

In 1949 began the trans-Atlantic Swissair flights with the ex-USAAF C-54 transports converted to Douglas DC-4. This plane allowed Swissair to transport 55 passengers from Switzerland to New York's Idlewild airport (JFK) via a classic westbound stopover at Gander. Swissair DC-4 were in service from 1946 to 1959, at this time, the Swiss company was partner of United Airlines. This poster is a variant of the 1949 poster done for the opening of the line Switzerland - New York. A rare Swissair photo-montage poster.
