As real airlines introduced regular jet services, ITV launched Skyport, a drama series about the activities at an international airport.
The half-hour dramas tried to encompass as many airline and airport elements as possible.
George Moon starred as Ginger Smart, an airport travel agent, supported by Lisa Gastoni, Gerald Harper and Barry Foster.
Guest stars included Edward Woodward, Stratford Johns, Dudley Sutton, Charles Lloyd Pack, Melvyn Hayes, Bernard Youens, Patrick Newell, Peter Adamson, Michael Barrington, Derren Nesbitt, Ferdy Mayne and Michael Collins.
The show was a spin-off from Shadow Squad.
