Mid Century Airline Posters Part 1

March 17, 2023

I’ve covered many different Airline Posters on Fishink blog in the past. There’s Pan Am, B.O.A.C Part 1 and B.O.A.C Part 2 and Braniff to name a few.

Here’s a great collection that I came across and haven’t seen many of before. I make no apologies if they have appeared on here previously however as they are all rather special!

Let’s begin by flying TWA.

Some wonderful posters, which make me want to hop on a plane right now.

Great use of colour, space and design. They are visually captivating.

Many of these wonderful posters were designed by David Klein. Such a talented artist.

From TWA to BEA.


Followed by some fresher United Air Lines posters.

That Miami Sun is fabulous don’t you think.

The San Franciso poster below, makes me think of Miroslav Sasek. Or perhaps they’ve just picked the same elements.


A little more structure from American Airlines.



From Braniff to Japan Air Lines.

A few Pam Am specials to finish for today. Is that Cilla ?

More Mid Century poster madness next week.

    They are amazing posters.
    My relatives Percy and Daphne Padden also designed posters.
    It would be great to see an exhibition on these.
