Founding-World Travel airlines was founded by Robert Lambert and Roger Clark in February 1968 at Seattle, Washington. The initial capital was provided by the federal government, which provided the initial part of the startup capital, which was enough for the company to purchase five brand new Boeing 757-200s. These planes were used for the first time for international flights, but it was soon realized that these planes were too small for international flights to be made, and so a smaller airplane was built. It was also decided to set up a hub at Seattle International Airport, and to provide air service from that hub. The plan was to then set up a nationwide network, thereby offering much more services and a better choice than what was available from regional airports.
Initially the business only offered nonstop flight between Seattle and its two main hubs, Vancouver and Hong Kong, but in 1970 this was expanded to include more destinations, mainly on Asia Pacific and Middle Eastern routes. Today this business still serves the entire continent of Asia Pacific as well as the Middle East, Latin America, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and Europe. The airlines now also serve many of North America’s major cities, including Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Dallas, Denver, Salt Lake City and San Antonio.
Today, the original Seattle company still exists and is known as United Airlines World Travel, Inc. Although the name has changed many times over the years, the service still remains the same: to provide the best service possible. Customers who travel internationally should consider availing this airline services. Whether you are flying domestic or international, you will never go wrong when you choose this airline.
