BA CityFlyer was formed in 2007 after the sale of British Airways’ regional business, BA Connect, to Flybe in March 2007. The subsidiary has since grown into a strong and profitable carrier with an expanding network of business and leisure destinations. Martyn Cartledge reports.

BA CityFlyer celebrated its tenth anniversary in 2017 with an expansion of its regional operations.

British Airways’ regional offshoots stretch back to 1994 when Manx Airlines Europe became a franchise partner, changing its name in 1996 to British Regional Airlines.
