This exquisite vintage poster, created in 1925 by Thor Bøgelund, was commissioned by DDL (Det Danske Luftfart Selskab) to promote their flights to Berlin, London, Paris, Hamburg, and Amsterdam. It's a remarkable artifact from the early days of commercial aviation.
The poster illustrates an airplane soaring above a map of northern Europe, highlighting the airports of call. Notably, the Kastrup Airport, which opened in 1925, is likely featured in conjunction with this artwork.
Danish text on the poster reads:
"Det Danske Luftfart Selskab. Benyt Luftvejen Fra København. Direkte tilslutning til nattogene fra Oslo og Stockholm. Hurtigste forbindelse med Berlin, Hamborg, Amsterdam, London og Paris."
The poster remains in very good condition, preserving this piece of aviation history.
