TWA Cargo À un petit marché français
TWA Cargo at a small French Market

Trans World Airlines (TWA) took air cargo a giant step further in the early 1960s with a ground breaking pioneer marketing tie in at local supermarkets in the Midwest USA.

TWA Cargo Perishables

  In an upscale store that was located in a suburb of Kansas City, called The French Market, the order of the day was produce and vegetables flown in “air speed fresh” from TWA’s USA and international destinations.
  “I recognize the store front and of course the TWA flight attendant training center was less than a mile from my house,” Michael Webber, Associate Vice President-Landrum & Brown recalls.
  “I also remember, as a kid, going to the neighboring apartment complex during the summer in hopes of seeing the flight attendant trainees poolside,” Mike laughed.
  “That was pretty much a rite of passage for us in the 1970s.”
  Actually, Mike might have found the perfect peach inside The French Market.
