Description:

This image shows a Tasman Empire Airways Limited (TEAL) advertising poster produced in the 1950s. It shows a kangaroo skiing downhill with the words 'FLY TO NEW ZEALAND' across the top. It is a silkscreen print designed by Arthur Thomas.

Educational value:
  • This asset indicates that TEAL operated flights between Australia and New Zealand in the 1950s - formed in 1940 by New Zealand, Australia and the United Kingdom, TEAL operated until 1961, when the Australian and UK owners were bought out and it became Air New Zealand.
  • It indicates that TEAL encouraged travellers from Australia to fly to New Zealand to take advantage of recreational activities such as skiing - at this time, there were seven return flights weekly, with a flight taking about eight hours each way.
