TIA Trans International Airlines (anybody knows it's 2-letter IATA code before becoming Transamerica?) is featured in the current Airways magazine. According to the article, it flew military charters with DC850s Travis AFB-Honolulu-Wake-Guam-ClarkAFB-Saigon in the 60s.
Any other charter flights/routes flown by TIA? route and type of aircraft used data-----appreciated.
Kindly post pics of Trans International. Thanks in advance.

It was TV, as for Transamerica.

Here's a rather complete list of TIA fleet.

TIA used to fly charters for Military Airlift Command in the late 70's to both McGuire AFB and Charleston AFB from Rhein-Main Air Base with both the DC-8-63 and DC-10. They were probably the second largest operator from Rhein-Main behind World Airways.

When I transferred to the Netherlands in 1983 I flew a re-engined DC-8-73 on Transamerica from JFK-AMS, which was the only US Flag Carrier on the route at the time.

Hello Papatango: Thanks for posting. Did you follow the same routing as mentioned in the article: Clark AFB-Guam-Wake-Honolulu-Travis AFB? Did you use the DC850?

As shown in the fleet list in Reply 1, almost all TIA DC-8s were stretched -63s and -61s.

Here are a few A.net photos. There are many more. Just enter "TIA" in the "Airline" box in the photo search screen.

The L1049H still has most of its original Trans-Canada Air Lines livery.

As well as military contract operations, as with many US supplementals of the period TIA also operated charter flights between Europe and the USA. At this time scheduled services were much more limited than exist nowadays and for many people these "affinity group" charters were the affordable way to cross the Atlantic.

They had regular charter flights to Le Bourget with streched DC8s and DC10s.Paris was one of the very first cities to receive their DC10s.

Later when LBG closed , they moved their operations to Orly , and continue under Transamerica name , till the bankrupcy.

They also had a 727-100.Saw a picture of it taken at Gatwick.

In the 70s , TIA and ONA had pretty the same kind of operations and same fleet planes.

Both flew military charter flights , both had streched DC8s , both received their first DC10s together , both flew JFK-LBG-JFK , both moved to Orly , and both have had the same destinity.....out of business.

The big difference , ONA crashed all of their DC10s , either by themselves , or when they were sold to other airlines.


Both had pleasant liveries.........and both were parts of the good old days !

In fact they had two of them, though not for very long.

And were indeed the launch customers of the DC-10-30CF with 2+2 (TIA) and 3+3 (ONA).

Quoting FCKC (Reply 8):
ONA crashed all of their DC10s , either by themselves , or when they were sold to other airlines.

So how is ONA responsible for both KAL and Spantax accidents ? Can we really consider the aborted takeoff of N1032F as a crash ? And finally, ONA has received five DC-10-30CFs. The last one is still going strong as an MD-10-30F (N304FE) with FX.
