Skyways, which started operating a small civilian airline business in post-war Britain in 1946, went on to launch the first commercial coach-air transport operation in 1955. Having sold its airline interests, the new company Skyways Coach-Air Limited started a service which took passengers from Central London to Lympne in Kent and then by air from Lympne Airfield to Beauvais before another coach journey into central Paris.
Our latest release on the airport link Commer Commando bus is a reminder of the coach that was an integral part of this cross-Channel service. Decorated in the pale blue, white and red colour scheme of Skyways Coach-Air Limited and registered HUV 40, the interior seating and other internal detail is finished in pale grey. You will notice that this vehicle was used as a mobile exhibition bus for promotional purposes. The company had its headquarters in Lympne, from where it operated until it ceased trading in 1971.
