Ansett Airways:

Reg Ansett registered ‘Ansett Airways’ in January 1936 as an extension of his successful ‘Ansett Roadways’ business that had been running since  December 1931. From a single Fokker airplane the business grew.  The logo of a double A (for Ansett Airways) with a pair of wings dates from around 1946 through to the takeover of ANA in 1957.

A photo from 1953. The complete logo included a map of Australia under the double A.

The logo for Ansett Roadways was similar, with the letters AR instead of AA, and a tyre between the wings.
