HISTORY: BRYMON AIRWAYS is a former British airline with its head office in the Brymon House on the property of Plymouth City Airport in Plymouth, Devon. The company was incorporated on 26 January 1970 as Brymon Aviation Limited operating as Brymon Airways. It was co-founded in 1972 by journalist Bill Bryce and racing driver Chris Amon. Its name derived from its creator's surnames: (Bry)ce and A(mon). In October 1992, Brymon Airways merged with Birmingham European Airways to form Brymon European Airways. This was bought jointly by British Airways and Maersk Air, in 1993. British Airways acquired Brymon Airways, whilst Maersk Air bought the Birmingham European Airways section. Maersk Air renamed Birmingham European Airways to Maersk Air UK, but British Airways allowed Brymon to keep its name. Having said this, Brymon's Aircraft were repainted in British Airways Express colours. Around this time they initiated a service from Newcastle to Paris. On 30 July 1993 the company was renamed Brymon Airways Limited to reflect the operating name.
