Trans Australia Airlines, 1980s
TAA (Trans Australia Airlines) was one of the two major Australian domestic airlines between its inception in 1946. They joined the jet-age in 1964 with the B727 and the DC-9 in 1967. TAA introduced the Airbus A300 in 1981 with new branding and logo. It was in answer to Ansett’s new Boeing 767’s which provided domestic wide-body service and comfort. In 1986 TAA rebranded again and changed it’s name to Australian Airlines. TAA was purchased by Qantas in September 1992
