Air France was formed on October 7, 1933 from a merger of several airlines including Air Orient and Compagnie Générale Aéropostale. Since then, the brand has made a conscious decision to represent French values, culture, cuisine, and especially style in the air. This led to a unique mission for its advertising. The airline agreed to give the opportunity to poster artists to express themselves freely on aviation. With a heritage of over 1500 posters produced by the most famous illustrators, Air France has one of the greatest collections in the world. We took a look and put together the best posters from the airline's past, ca. 1930s - 1960s.
