In the early 90s, there was a sort of alliance between some UK regional airlines, called Airlines of Britain Group, consisting of Loganair, British Midland and Manx e.g.

My question: When did this alliance start? When did it break? And why? Have there been any other members beside the three listed?

I know that British Regional Airlines formelly was part of Manx Airlines. So today's Manx is only a small part of the original Manx.

Does Manx hold shares of British Regional? Or does BA hold shares of Manx?

Any information considering the development of the AoB-airlines and British Regional are appreciated.

Airlines of Britain wasn't an alliance at all. It was a holding company that owned British Midland, Loganair and Manx Airlines. All of them were owned by Sir Michael Bishop, etc., at the time.

Then they juggled the companies around again, formed Euro-Manx based at Cardiff, sold Loganair to a management buyout, and eventually split out British Midland again and formed British Regional which is effectively what was Euro-Manx. Now, British Regional is being sold to BA and merged with Brymon.

Sir MDB now has a substantial shareholding in BMI, and Business Air, which BM also acquired, has been renamed British Midland Regional.

Confused? You are now!!!
