British Regional Airlines held a United Kingdom Civil Aviation Authority Type A Operating Licence, It was permitted to carry passengers, cargo and mail on aircraft with 20 or more seats.


British Regional Airlines can trace its history back to March 1991 when Manx Airlines created Manx Airlines Europe in order to expand and fly routes within the United Kingdom.[1]

In 1994 Manx Airlines Europe became a franchise carrier for British Airways. In September 1996 Manx Airlines Europe changed its name to British Regional Airlines.

In March 2001 British Airways purchased the British Regional Airlines Group (holding company of British Regional Airlines and Manx Airlines) for £78m.[2] The airline was merged with Brymon Airways to create British Airways CitiExpress.
