Now Fly JAL to Japan and on to Hong Kong. Japan Airlines, Wings of the New Japan (circa 1955)
JAL commenced operations to Hong Kong in 1955, completing a Trans-Pacific route from California via Tokyo. This silk-screen poster, which uses a bright colour scheme typical of the 1950's, was JAL's first Hong Kong poster and it reinforced the importance of the sailing junk as the dominent symbol promoting Hong Kong tourism.
