Trans Australia Airlines (TAA) was an Australian domestic airline that operated from 1946 to 1992. It was established by the Australian government in 1945 to break the monopoly of Australian National Airways (ANA) on domestic air travel. TAA quickly became the dominant airline in Australia, and it played a major role in the development of the country's aviation industry. TAA introduced a number of innovations in Australian aviation, including the first jet airliner, the first wide-body airliner, and the first business class service. It also supported the Flying Doctor Service of Australia, providing aircraft, pilots, and engineers to ensure that medical care was available to people in remote areas. In 1986, TAA was renamed Australian Airlines. It continued to operate as a separate airline until 1992, when it merged with Qantas.
