British Airways

Now the UK's largest international scheduled airline, British Airways can be traced back to the birth of civil aviation, the pioneering days following World War I. On 25 August 1919, its forerunner company, Aircraft Transport and Travel Limited (AT&T), launched the world's first daily international scheduled air service between London and Paris. That flight, operated by a single-engine de Havilland DH4A biplane taking off from Hounslow Heath, carried a single passenger and cargo that included newspapers, Devonshire cream and grouse.

From the world's first scheduled international passenger service in 1919, through to the first jet service in 1952, and to the first supersonic service in 1976, British Airways is justly proud of its heritage, now flying to over 550 destinations.

British Airways aircraft vary in size from the RJ100 to the Boeing 747-40.
