Frye Announces Reduced Airfare Rates
An historic announcement by Jack Frye to the airline industry - 'drastically reduced airfares'! At this point in 1936, Transcontinental & Western Air had a fleet of 21 airliners that would be serving coast-to-coast, 24 hours a day. Frye openly and positively stated that as a result of these reduced fares and increased passenger travel now being less than extra-fare rail travel, revenues would increase.
This is another groundbreaking milestone in airline history in whick Jack Frye and TWA lead the way. Another vision Mr. Frye and company enjoyed for the benifit of the passenger travel industry, and the company's future.
