  British Airtours - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
British Airtours was merged with British Caledonian Charter, the wholly owned charter subsidiary of British Caledonian (BCal), Britain's erstwhile largest wholly privately owned, Independent international scheduled airline and the country's "Second Force" carrier, adopting the Caledonian Airways name when the newly privatised British Airways completed the acquisition of the rival BCal in April 1988.
British Airtours, as the airline had become known following the creation of British Airways in 1974 as a result of the 1972 BEA-BOAC merger, therefore decided to retire its last remaining Comets during that year itself and to sell the entire fleet to Dan-Air.
When British Airways decided in the late 1970s to re-equip the aging and increasingly inefficient short-/medium-haul Hawker Siddeley Tridents and BAC 1-11s it had inherited from BEA with state-of-the-art Boeing 757s and 737s, a follow-on order for nine brand-new 737-236 "Advanced" aircraft was placed with Boeing.
