Varney Speed Lines System
(LAO - Líneas Aéreas Occidentales)

USA

*

Varney Air Service started operating from San Francisco (Alameda) to Los Angeles in January 1932. The name was soon changed to Varney Speed Lines. The service was discontinued in early 1933 to concentrate on a new route from Los Angeles to Mexico City. This was known alternatively as Varney Speed Lines System or Líneas Aéreas Occidentales. The route was abandoned in 1934 and the founder, Walter T. Varney, transferred his interest to the Southwest Division of Varney Speed Lines (the future Continental Airlines), set up to carry the mail between Pueblo and El Paso.
