SPANZ advertisement

SPANZ advertisement

NAC’s monopoly was successfully challenged by South Pacific Airlines of New Zealand (SPANZ). Between 1960 and 1966 (when it went into receivership) the airline provided services to many provincial towns. This advertisement capitalises on local interest in the South African rugby tour of New Zealand in 1965.
