Varney Airlines was an airmail service created by Walter Varney April 6th, 1926 in Boise, Idaho. Varney Airlines completed the first contracted airline mail delivery flight in the United States one day before on April 5th, 1926. Varney Airlines would eventually become an industry leader in airline transportation by becoming today's United Airlines and Continental Airlines. Who would have thought United and Continental Airlines roots had originated in Boise's soil?!
