This is a magnificent original vintage airline poster issued by SAS in 1946. SAS Scandinavian Airlines System was founded on 1 August 1946 as a result of a cooperation agreement between the three Scandinavian airlines Svensk Interkontinental Lufttrafik AB, Det Danske Luftfartselskab and Det Norske Luftfartselskap.
These operations began on September 17, 1946 under the name Overseas SAS (OSAS). Initially, two route loops were flown: one to North America with New York as the final destination, and one to South America with Montevideo and Buenos Aires as the final destinations.
The poster depicts passengers in fashionable clothing leaving the Douglas DC-4 Skymaster and aircraft passing the tail. Douglas DC-4 Skymaster was used in the routes to New York and Rio de Janeiro.
In great condition backed on linen.
