The Library of Congress Gains Historical Air Travel Collection

The Library of Congress (LC) acquired a collection from the Airline Tariff Publishing Company comprising 1,588 volumes of airline tariffs, rules, and routes from the company for cargo, military, passenger, and joint passenger travel domestically, internationally, and regionally. It showcases how flights were sold, ticketed, and distributed from the 1940s through 2004, when the internet was starting to change travel.

The LC notes, “Since 1965, the company has collected and distributed the world’s fare and fare-related data to the global ecosystem so travel agents, airlines, global distribution systems and sales channels can sell airline tickets to the public. Before the digital age, these fares, rules and routes were published and printed at the company and distributed around the world in large bound books.”

The collection joins the LC’s Science, Technology & Business Division.
