HISTORY: BRITISH UNITED AIRWAYS LIMITED (BUA) was a private, independent British airline formed as a result of the merger of Airwork Services and Hunting-Clan Air Transport in July 1960, making it the largest wholly private airline based in United Kingdom at the time. In 1962, Jersey Airlines, a former "BEA associate", and Silver City Airways joined the BUA group of companies. The operations of these airlines were reorganised into British United (C.I.) Airways (BUA(C.I.)), British United (Manx) Airways and British United Air Ferries. On 30 November 1970, Caledonian Airways acquired BUA. The merger entity would be known for an interim period as Caledonian/BUA before eventually adopting the British Caledonian name.
CALEDONIAN AIRWAYS (1961-1970) + BUA (1960-1970) -> CALEDONIAN-BUA (1970-1971) -> BRITISH CALEDONIAN (1971-1988)
