    Default What font is this - old airline logo

    Greetings from Johannesburg,

    I would like to know the name of the font used in the attached South African Airways logo/emblem dating back to circa 1946.

    Or the name of a font similar/almost identical.

    Kind regards,

    Jaws

    Hi jaws,

    You could use Architektura or Helvetica Condensed. Either would work, but Architektura would give the piece more vintage authenticity.

    My Best,

    Gary
