Use the links below to select the airline you'd like to create the timeline for. Bear in mind that the airline business can be preacrious at times with economic pressures, fuel prices and even wars causing the demise of many not fortunate enough to be state aided. Furthermore as an airline starts to become successful they become ripe for mergers or takeovers, and even in some cases 'dirty tricks.' So, whilst the list below appears comprehensive it's only a reflection of the adverts that appeared in the aviation press, so if you're expecting to see the glossy pictures which appeared in travel; agent's windows for example you'll be disappointed. Nonetheless it's an interesting section for students of the evolution of pioneer airlines.
