Feature of the Month

 

Century Pacific Lines Ď31

 

This monthís feature covers one of the earliest attempts to set up a budget airline in competition with a major service. In 1931 Errett Lobban Cord, the owner of the Auburn Motor Company, set up a couple of airlines. One of these was Century Pacific Line. It was aimed at competing with the railroads and American Airlines with fares below the equivalent rail fares.

 

The flights are available here: Century Pacific Lines
