Promotional Button from Pioneering Texas Airline
Texas International offered cheap flights from 1944-1982
Texas International Airlines’ “Peanut Fares” were the mainstay of the Houston-based airline, known previously as Aviation Enterprises and Trans-Texas Airways. This button promotes the low fares developed in response to competition from Dallas-based Southwest Airlines in the mid-1970s. Texas International Airlines operated from 1944 until 1982, when it merged with Continental Airlines.
