The trials to open an air service between Norway and the USA. One of the worlds largest airlines with a network spanning the world: Pan American Airways. The history of this airline is without doubt very interesting. A service to the small country of Norway was just one of the air services operated, but generated some 30,000 to 50,000 passengers per year. We take a look at the history of Pan American World Airways and its routes to Norway. When we ask you the first air service to be inaugurated.You might be interested to know that Pan American Airways was as early as 1936 with a trial service and in 1940 actually an air service. But it had to wait until after the Second World War. Its fascinating story is told here, all the way until the end in 1991. The author describes the intense conversation between the Nordic airline companies and Pan American Airways before the war and gives a historic detailed description of the post-war development, including many photographs, timetables, posters and advertisements from that time. Pages are dedicated to marketing and sales, the Oslo office and its two most well-known directors. A final chapter describes the work of the World Wings International, the Norwegian Chapter, the association of former Pan Am stewardesses. The softback magazine includes a beautifult paiting of the Norwegian Sikorsky S-43, LN-DAG Valkyrien.
