An advertising ashtray for AIR NEW ZEALAND made by Fuyo Japan in plastic....diameter is 4" ...condition excellent. Air New Zealand began as TEAL (Tasman Empire Airways Limited) in 1940, operating Short Empire flying boats on trans-Tasman routes. Following World War II, TEAL operated weekly flights from Auckland to Sydney, and added Wellington and Fiji to its routes. The New Zealand and Australian governments purchased 50% stakes in TEAL in 1953, and the airline ended flying boat operations in favour of propeller airliners by 1960. With the introduction of the DC-8 in 1965, TEAL became Air New Zealand.....the New Zealand government having purchased Australia's 50% stake in the carrier.
In 1978, the domestic airline National Airways Corporation (NAC) and its subsidiary Safe Air were merged into Air New Zealand to form a single national airline, further expanding the carrier's operations.
