History

British Airways' sale of BA Connect to Flybe in 2007 did not include the London City Airport operation and its associated fleet of ten Avro RJ100 regional jet aircraft. This led to BA's decision to resurrect erstwhile Gatwick-based CityFlyer Express, which it had integrated into its Gatwick mainline short-haul operation in 2001 following that airline's acquisition in 1999, as a new wholly owned subsidiary to take over this operation as of March 2007.
