Air Ceylon (Sri Lanka was then Ceylon) was formed in 1947. The State-owned airline began by operating domestic flights using Douglas C-47 Dakota aircraft. International services began two years later in 1949 with Douglas DC-4 planes.

Air Ceylon operated the international services in cooperation with Australian National Airways (ANA) which had a 49 per cent stake in the airline. The longest route flown at the time was from Colombo to London.

Both ANA and Air Ceylon used some of the same posters for advertseing, just changing the logo. This poster is very rare! Ready to be framed and put on the wall.
