On the corner of Whitehead and Caroline, stands one of Key West’s most impressive and historic buildings – First Flight. Well known for being the birthplace of Pan American World Airways,
Pan-Am’s first tickets were sold out of this very building in 1927.
Pan Am was the principal and largest international air carriers in the United States from 1927 until its collapse on December 4, 1991.
Founded in 1927 as a scheduled air mail and passenger service operating between Key West, Florida and Havana, Cuba, the airline became a major company credited with many innovations that shaped the international airline industry, including the widespread use of jet aircraft, jumbo jets and computerized reservation systems.
