Show Notes

Welcome to a special TWA Edition of The Pan Am Podcast!

In this episode we are joined by Pam Blaschum, the director of the TWA Museum in Kansas City, Missouri. Then we are joined by Tyler Morse  of MCR Hotels who developed the former TWA Flight Center at JFK Airport in New York City into today’s TWA Hotel

It is important to point out that Pan Am history is not complete without TWA and TWA history is not complete without Pan Am. These two airlines were pioneers for most of the 20th Century and each achieved many firsts in aviation history. 

Not only did they lead the way in commercial aviation, but developed many of the systems, procedures, technology, and culture that are still evident today.

The imprint that these two companies left on history cannot be ignored.


TWA Museum, TWA Hotel, and Eero Saarinen:

  • Located in the 1931 TWA Corporate Headquarters building, the TWA Museum is located in Kansas City, Missouri. Plan you visit today!
  • Located in the iconic 1962 TWA Flight Center, designed by Eero Saarinen, at JFK International Airport in New York City, the TWA Hotel has become a nostalgic destination. The Paris Café by Jean-Georges serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Book your room and make your reservation today!
