Article publication date: 1 April 1953



Perhaps the most interesting development in the tourist trade, certainly in passenger transport after the war, has taken place on the North Atlantic, now the best‐developed long distance route in the world. It is surprising to think that before the war there was not one single regular passenger service by air between Europe and North America and the entire traffic was dependent on sea transport. From the figures quoted below the remarkable progress of air transport is shown very clearly.
