Pan American World Airways information

Pan American World Airways 

Pan American World Airways, commonly known as Pan Am, was the principal international airline and largest in the United States from 1927 until its financial collapse on December 4, 1991. Founded in 1927 as a regular air mail and passenger service operating between Key West, Florida and Havana, Cuba, the airline became a major credit company of the many innovations that shaped the airline industry internationally, including the widespread use of jet aircraft, jumbo jets, and computerized reservation systems. Identified by its blue globe logo and the use of the word "Clipper" in aircraft names and call signs, the airline was a cultural icon of the 20th century and the unofficial flag carrier of the United States. Terminal flagship Pan Am is in John F. Worldport Kennedy International Airport in New York.
