British European Airways was created in 1946 when the UK Government nationalised private airlines operating scheduled services. BEA was soon declaring itself to the World as Europe's foremost airline, its advertising projecting a lifestyle of affluence and luxury.

This book tells the story of a very different BEA, the one which provided essential services to the Channel Islands, the Isles of Scilly, the Isle of Man, the Hebrides, Orkney and Shetland. Here its role was not a luxury, but an essential link of vital importance to these communities. The pre-BEA pioneering of air services to the islands is also explored, as are changes which have occurred since the absorption of BEA into British Airways in 1974.
