Panagra's network stretched from Panama (or the Canal Zone) to Santiago, Chile and Buenos Aires.[1] It was founded in 1929 to compete with SCADTA, a German-owned company, and held a quasi-monopoly over air travel in parts of Colombia and South America during the 1940s and 1950s.
In 1939 an American traveling to Buenos Aires would board a Pan Am S-42 flying boat at Miami and fly to Colon, in the Canal Zone, stay overnight, then board a Panagra DC2/DC3 that flew to Buenos Aires with overnight stops in Guayaquil, Arica and Santiago. Four days sounds slow, but it was a day faster than Pan Am via the coast of Brazil. Fare Miami to Buenos Aires was $550 one way.[2]
After World War II airliners could fly at night, and in 1947 a Panagra DC-6 was scheduled Miami to Buenos Aires in 20 hr 25 min; Pan Am crewed the DC-6 across the Caribbean to Albrook Field, near Balboa, Panama. (In 1949 Panagra flights shifted to Tocumen.) In 1955 Panagra DC-6Bs and DC-7Bs started flying to Washington DC and New York, flown by National crews north of Miami. In 1957 the DC-7B via Lima was a couple of hours faster Idlewild to Buenos Aires than the Pan Am DC-7B via Rio.
The airline entered the jet age during the 1960s when it introduced new Douglas DC-8-31 jetliners.[3]
According to the Panagra system timetable dated July 15, 1966, the airline was operating DC-8 "El Inter Americano" jet service between various Central and South American destinations and Los Angeles (LAX), Miami (MIA), New York City (JFK) and San Francisco (SFO).[4] Panagra cooperated with National Airlines and Pan American World Airways with regard to their service to the U.S. This timetable also lists the following destinations served by Panagra in Central and South America: Antofagasta, Chile; Buenos Aires, Argentina; Cali, Colombia; Guayaquil, Ecuador; La Paz, Bolivia; Lima, Peru; Panama City, Panama; Quito, Ecuador; and Santiago, Chile.
Panagra merged with Braniff International Airways in 1967. Braniff operated the Panagra routes to South America until 1982, when Eastern Air Lines purchased its South American operations. Beginning in 1990, these routes were then operated by American Airlines which had acquired them from Eastern.

Customer Reviews

  1. Pan America Grace Airways "Panagra" DC-6 Reg# N6537C "El Pacifico"Review by James F
    Customer Rating

    This was the most beautiful 400 scale model made in 2014. It is a replica of El . Pacifico. "El Pacifico", was in service 05/1952-06/1962. Used on Miami to South America routes. All four Panagra DC-6B aircraft had that titling in red/orange on them. All DC-6B aircraft were retired by 1962. Two were sold in 1960, the other two by 1963. After service with Panagra it went to Standard Air, Pacific Western and Conair.

    There is only one image of this aircraft on Airliners.net and it is only of the nose area.

    The Aeroclassics DC-6 is near flawless. The nose is well shaped, the engine are shaped properly and the colors on this model are something that separate it from the other DC-6 model.

    It is curious that we have no others in 400 scale. Hopefully we will see a C-46, DC-3, DC4 and L1049. There were also some jets in the later fleet.
