“The Airmail Act of 1934 re-established competitive bidding for airmail contracts. Under this Act, the control of the airline industry was placed in the hands of three agencies of the federal government. Those three agencies were the Post Office, the Interstate Commerce Commission, and the Department of Commerce. A Federal Aviation Commission was also established to study aviation policy. This is the commission which recommended that a separate organization be made to control the airline industry.”
