Trans-Texas Airways began service in 1947, with a DC-3 fleet connecting several small cities in Texas with Houston and Dallas. The airline was re-named Texas International in 1969, better reflecting its expansion to Mexico, and several states in the U.S. south, mountain west, and west coast. In 1981, the airline's owner acquired Continental Airlines, and the two carriers were merged under the Continental name.

An artistic interpretation of the irline's branding is laser-engraved onto an acrylic swizzle stick, and each swizzle stick measures approximately 5.3 inches in length, with a material thickness of 1/8 inch. The acrylic material used to manufacture these swizzles is suitable for use in beverages, but the sticks should be hand washed only, using regular dish soap, then hand dried.

This set of four swizzle sticks has been produced in four colors: Stratosphere Blue, Idlewild Green, Afterburner Orange, and Crystal Starry Sky. The choice of a mix of colors, or all four sticks in one color, is up to you! For good readability, the design is engraved as a reversed mirror image on one side of the swizzle stick material, so that it can be viewed with proper alignment on the opposite side.

While these have been created today as our interpretations of original vintage swizzle sticks, their mid-century look and feel make them a great addition to your airline or retro collectibles, or they can go to work as ideal enhancements to the beverages you're serving!
