Commercial passenger air travel developed in the wake of the First World War but was still in its infancy in the 1920s.

Although Evelyn Waugh has Charles Ryder travelling to Casablanca with Air France, this would not have been possible in 1926 as the company was not formed until 1933, through the merger of five smaller companies. It is possible, however, that such a service could have been provided by one of the precursor companies which included Air Union and Société Générale de Transport Aérien (SGTA).

Casablanca is a city located on the Atlantic coast of Morocco in North Africa.
