HISTORY: EAST-WEST AIRLINES was an Australian regional airline founded in Tamworth, New South Wales in 1947. It operated to major regional city-centres and connected these centres to various state capitals, and by the 1980s it was Australia's third largest domestic airline. It also carried out its own heavy maintenance in Tamworth and operated a network of Travel Centres. It continued to operate as a separate entity until 1993 when its operations were integrated with those of Ansett and the East-West name ceased to be used.
