The airline travelled around the world to many destinations, the first flight to Hong Kong was carried out in 1936.The airline was operative and traveling overseas until 1974, after being merged with BEA (British European Airways) which evolved into today’s British Airways.
This charming image was created by an anonymous artist to promote travel during the 1960’s to some of the exotic destinations flown by BOAC in the Orient including Hong Kong and Tokyo.. The unusual size of this poster makes it interesting for use in confined spaces.
