Pan American World Airways, popularly known simply as “Pan Am”, was perhaps the most iconic airline of the golden age of commercial air travel.  Founded in 1927, it quickly grew into the world’s largest airline and pioneered many regularly scheduled long-haul routes and made many record-breaking flights.

Introducing the Boeing 707 in the late 1950s, Pan Am came to lead the way in jet travel.  From 1960 to 1965, the company’s revenue doubled and billing itself as the "World's Most Experienced Airline", it carried 6.7 million passengers in 1966, and by 1968, its 150 jets flew to 86 countries on 5 continents over a scheduled route network of 81,410 unduplicated miles (131,000 km).  During these golden days, Pan Am was exceedingly profitable and maintained cash reserves of over US$1 billion – an astounding sum for the time. 

In the age of luxury jet travel, Pan Am’s service was considered to be the gold standard.  The airline’s extremely well-trained stewardesses were popularly celebrated in and of themselves for their great style and welcoming demeanor.

The publishing house Atlanta GmbH "Company for international advertising for industry, export and traffic" from Frankfurt was specialised for post WWII separately published informative maps and advertising in "all the languages", as said at the back of this map.
