Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

TOE fact that the Great Western Railway announces this week the commencement of a regular daily air service between Cardiff, Torquay and Teignmouth is a clear indication that road-transport operators should lose no time in studying the possibilities of air transport, which are being put forward regularly and comprehensively in the columns of The Commercial Motor. • It niust not be overlooked that, as announced in this journal long ago, the railways obtained powers to operate air se.rvices as early as 1929, since when they have had the matter under close observation, awaiting -their opportunity to enter the new transport field.

There is every scope for private enterprise in the establishment of new services which will offer most attractive facilities to the travelling public. Cross-country and cross-water routes, -which cannot satisfactorily be served by the rail way, and on which even motor coaches are unable to afford anything like the facilities of an air line, provide numerous attractive possibilities for those who are considering this important matter ; whilst no organization could be more suited to take up air transport than that of a well-run road-transport and road-travel concern.

Almost every week our air-transport news page announces one or more services that are commencing, and there is no doubt that this summer will see the nucleus of quite a network of internal air lines.


Locations: Teignmouth, Torquay, Cardiff
