Footnotes

  • British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC) was the British state airline created in 1940 from the merger of Imperial Airways and British Airways Ltd. In the Civil Aviation Act of 1946, the state-owned British European Airways (BEA) and British South American Airways (BSAA) were formed, and the full name British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC) was finally applied and accepted throughout the Corporation. BOAC absorbed BSAA in 1949, but BEA operated the UK's domestic and European routes for the next quarter century. A 1971 Act of Parliament proposed the merger of BOAC and BEA, finalised in 1974, forming today's British Airways.
