well over 11 years after Birmingham European Airlines (BEA) merged with byron airways which later became part of BA, Birmingham is to re-launch its own airline.

As of yet, BEA have been emplying staff for the re-launch ad is set to start european services sometime later in 2006. an announcement is expected this week according to industry insiders. The planes initially used with me jetstreams which the idea of upgrading with demand!

Birmingham European Airways was originally established in 1983 (as Birmingham Executive Airways). The airline as its name implies was based at Birmingham Airport (BHX/EGBB) in the UK and operated services geared towards business travellers. The fleet initially included Jetstream 31 aircraft. A Saab 340 was later introduced which suffered severe reliability problems in the airline's service, and which was replaced by a Gulfstream I . Birmingham European Airways later introduced a number of BAC 1-11 aircraft into its fleet.

The airline's route network included points such as Amsterdam, Milan, Oslo, Stuttgart, Newcastle, Belfast and Cork.

In October 1992, Birmingham European merged with Brymon Airways to form Brymon European Airways.

In January 2006 there was news of a new "Birmingham European Airways" being established, once again using Jetstream aircraft to serve European destinations from Birmingham and with the stated aim of starting operations during 2006.

I wonder where BEA could fly that wouldn't conflict with BA Connect's and flybe's route networks? They seem to have Europe covered pretty well, with the exception of smaller business centres such as Bremen and Luxembourg.

well i thnk these are aiming for different markets...BA Connect and Flybe (along with BMI Baby) are aimed at the low cost sector, these will be aimed at business travellers.....a bit like Eastern airlines now!

Birmingham European? That took a long time to come up with that name and the aircraft don't look great either.

I prefer the bare metal look on "The worlds new favourite airline... Birminghair " :)
