Pan Am, the iconic airline of luxurious international air travel back in the Last Century, announced today that by the end of the year it plans to re-institute intercontinental flights between 20 cities.
New York, Los Angeles San Francisco and Chicago will be the airline’s U.S. departure points.
Beijing, Tokyo, Singapore, and Hong Kong are on the list of Asian cities.
Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, Caracas, and Quito will be the South American connections.
European cities served by Pan Am will be London, Paris, Rome, and Frankfurt.

Pan Am has asked Boeing to produce an updated version of the 707, the plane that made the airline a world-class carrier as air travel entered the jet age.
Two hundred of the planes are on order, with the first to be delivered on July 4th, 2017.
