Northeast Airlines was an American airline based in Boston, Massachusetts. The airline began as Boston-Maine Airways, founded as a Pan American Airways System contract carrier in 1931, by the Boston and Maine Railroad and Maine Central Railroad, flying from Boston to Bangor via Portland. It flew only abortively until 1933, when it began contract service for National Airways, an agreement which lasted four years. The name Northeast Airlines was adopted in 1940. In 1965 the airline adopted a new marketing campaign and new aircraft: Boeing 727, McDonnell Douglas DC-9 and Fairchild FH-227.
Despite a modern fleet and the Yellowbird marketing campaign, Northeast remained at a disadvantage against larger competitors such as Eastern Air Lines and National Airlines . By the early 1970s Northeast's financial condition was such that they sought a merger or a sale. On August 1, 1972 Northeast merged with Delta Air Lines.
