Dallas-based Braniff Airways, Inc., dba Braniff International, announces that its licensed hotel building has been listed in the National Park Service National Register of Historic Places, according to Braniff Airways Chairman Richard Ben Cass. The Texas Historical Commission posted that the nomination was officially listed in the Register on March 2, 2021.

In November 2020, Braniff licensed a new Braniff-themed hotel project at the former Braniff International Hostess College located in the Oaklawn neighborhood of Dallas. The boutique hotel is tentatively scheduled to open in 2022, once the facility is fully remodeled. In 2014, Braniff Airways Foundation initiated the process to have the building listed in the National Register.

The hotel is planned to feature 75 luxury rooms amidst the elegant and stylish themes of Braniff International including both historic as well as recently created designs and styles. The hotel will be the only Braniff hotel in existence in the United States with the TWA Hotel in New York as the only other airline-themed hotelier. Proposed amenities include a restaurant, bar and large swimming pool with outdoor beverage service. A Braniff Boutique store will be housed in the new hotel offering luxurious Braniff-branded goods ranging from model airplanes to bags and apparel.


Braniff Airways, Inc, the former international airline, is now a leading global historic airline branding and marketing, online retail and historic airliner tour firm, which was originally formed in 1928. Braniff manages a substantial portfolio of licensing agreements worldwide. The company operates its lucrative Braniff Boutique Online Retail store ( braniffboutique.com ) that sells to 123 countries worldwide along with three brick and mortar stores. Braniff also administers its original Employee Airline Pass Program, which offers current and former employees discount travel on partner airlines and travel companies.

Braniff Airways also supports Braniff Airways Foundation, which is the official repository for Braniff's historical corporate and employee records, photographs and negatives and memorabilia. Over 20 million pages of Braniff corporate documents and 40,000 historical items are housed in the Foundation's Braniff International Heritage Archives, which are housed at three locations in Dallas, Texas, with a new facility scheduled to open during 2021.
