Dallas-Based Braniff Airways Signs Historic Agreement With the Dallas Cowboys, TAC Air and Reed Enterprises for Braniff Headquarters

July 21, 2020 GMT

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul 21, 2020--

Some 65 years after the signing of the original letter of intent to build a new Braniff hangar at Love Field, an agreement was recently signed by Dallas-based Braniff Airways, Inc., with the Dallas Cowboys, TAC Air, Lincoln Properties and Reed Enterprises regarding the Airline’s former Operations and Maintenance Base at Dallas Love Field. The licensing agreement, will ensure that Braniff’s name will be used to identify the property for the next 69 years, according Braniff Board Chairman Richard B. Cass.

Braniff’s new licensing agreement culminates nearly eight years of efforts to preserve the world’s only surviving dual butterfly mid-century hangar, which was designed by the famed architects William Pereira and Charles Luckman of Los Angeles, California. In 2011, Braniff joined with advocacy lead Preservation Dallas to ensure that the hangar that had dominated the eastern side of Love Field for six decades would continue to contribute to Dallas’s history.
