One Hundred Years ... of assorted British airlines post-WW1 that morphed and merged over the decades to eventually become BA.
BA was created in 1974 after a British Airways Board was established by the British government to manage the two nationalised airline corporations, British Overseas Airways Corporation and British European Airways, and two regional airlines, Cambrian Airways from Cardiff, and Northeast Airlines from Newcastle upon Tyne. On 31 March 1974, all four companies were merged to form British Airways.
Happy 44th Birthday back in March, BA
