Trans World Airlines (TWA) was a major United States-based airline with hubs in St. Louis, New York City (JFK) and Atlanta, with focus cities in Kansas City; San Juan, Puerto Rico; and Los Angeles. The airline operated from 1930 until it was acquired by American Airlines in 2001.

TWA, which operated flights to most major U.S. cities, was one of the largest domestic U.S. airlines. It also had a substantial feeder operation from smaller Midwest cities. Beyond the U.S., TWA had a highly developed European and Middle Eastern network, served mainly from its hub at John F. Kennedy International Airport. Along with Pan American World Airways, it was considered to be a secondary unofficial flag carrier for the United States, especially after Pan Am's collapse in the 1990s.[3][4][5]
