An Airline Called Aeroamerica

Tue Jan 29, 2002 12:32 am

Does anybody have any information about such an airline back in the '70's? The operated B720b's among other equipment, if any other at all.

The company started out as Air Club International in 1974. They operated mainly military charters to Europe. They also began domestic services between Seattle and Hawaii in 1978, among other places. Their fleet included Boeing 707's, Boeing 720's, and BAC-111's. The company lost its license to opeate Europe/Hawaii in 1979, and eventually filed for bankruptcy in the early 1980's

I found this web site made by Aeoramerica ex-employees. I flew on one of their B720b's which was on short term lease with AirMalta in the Summer of '78 or '79. There are some old pics which I found interesting.
