HISTORY: SILVER CITY was a private, British independent airline formed in 1946. The name Silver City was derived from the eponymous Australian mining town at Broken Hill, where The Zinc Corporation was headquartered. Silver City's first commercial flight departed London Heathrow for Sydney via Johannesburg in late 1946. On 1 January 1963, Air Holdings merged Silver City with Channel Air Bridge to form British United Air Ferries.
