TO WORK TOGETHER
PEOPLE FIRST MUST GET TOGETHER
The President of the United States to Africa,
by air!
The Secretary of State to Russia, by air!
.Numerous other Americans and leaders
of the United Nations, on their world-wide
war missions, are criss-crossing the world by air.
They have to go to places quickly in order
to do things quickly!
It's Getting Commonplace
Not only do transport planes quickly bridge
the Atlantic and Pacific for thousands of
persons, but also for tons and tons of products
necessary to win this war. The crews of the
cargo and passenger planes of the Army’s Air
Transport Command and the Naval Air Trans
port Service will go down in history for the vital
roles they are playing in today’s world drama.
Yes, international war travellers do use air
as nonchalantly as we at home hail a taxi.
Due to air transportation the old song title
"Forty-Five Minutes From Broadway” now has
universal significance.
Why Not? Air Is Everywhere
The importance of why one travels changes with
the times. Now it’s for military, political and
morale reasons.
Tomorrow, it will be for all manner of
' business, professional and recreational reasons.
Then, the travel missions of even more people,
both domestic and international, will acquire
first rank in importance.
American Airlines Will Grow
Peacetime travellers too will demand the time
saving, easy, comfortable otHuyi to go places
and do things. Our job is to grow in order to
enable more people, in all lines of business, to
get together quicker so that they may work
together more effectively.
It's Inevitable
Large as is the volume of today’s wartime air
travel it is only a hint of the inevitable postwar
volume. Even if we desired to, we could not
prevent its growth, any more than the steam
ship, the train and the motor car were prevented.
American Airlines, being the greatest national
airline and a great international airline, is
preparing for future expansion — because, air
transportation is still NEW for millions of people.
