Description:

Tasman Empire Airways Ltd&#8212TEAL was formed in 1940 as a joint British-Australian-New Zealand company for the operation of services linking New Zealand and Australia. Operating Short Empire flying-boats, it maintained the only regular passenger service of any kind between the two countries during World War II. In 1954, Britain withdrew and TEAL became jointly owned by the New Zealand and Australian Governments New Zealand later assumed sole ownership of TEAL (1961). DC-6s replaced flying-boats on the trans-Tasman and Fiji services in 1954, but a Solent was used on the Coral route from Fiji to Tahiti until September 1960. As of 1963, TEAL had 12 802 miles of routes in operation: between Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch (New Zealand) and Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane (Australia), and from Auckland to Nandi (Fiji), Pago Pago (American Samoa) and Tahiti.
