Chapter 5 discusses how an air route was made. In 1937, Imperial Airways (U.K.) and Pan American Airways (U.S.A.) launched an air passenger service between Bermuda and New York. It was the first transatlantic route of its kind. For it to happen, one of the first airlines in the colonial Caribbean, Caribbean Airways, was forced to close down. Chapter 5 examines the making of a major international air alliance and the unmaking of a local colonial airline. It relays a story about routes as lines of connection and disconnection, and ultimately reorients how the transatlantic is imagined and understood.
