"Central Airlines was founded by Keith Kahle in 1944 to operate charter and fixed base services in Oklahoma. Due to financing difficulties, it did not begin scheduled air service until September 15, 1949 just before its original certification expired. Headquarters were at Meacham Field in Ft. Worth,
Texas. Backers and Board members initially included Ft. Worth oilman F. Kirk Johnson, former City Councilman R.E. Harding, Jr., Don Earhart and actor Jimmy Stewart.

In 1961, the head office was moved to the new Amon Carter Field, which was later re-named Greater Southwest Airport.

By the mid 1960's Central operated to 40 cities spread throughout Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado, Arkansas and Missouri.

Central was sold and merged into Frontier Airlines on October 1, 1967."
