Silver City's B170 Mk32s carried up to three cars and fourteen passengers plus a flight attendant. Lydd (then also known as Ferryfield) was purpose built for the airline. The main destination was Le Touquet. Flights also operated to Ostend, Calais and (in the summer) Deauville. During July and August in the early 1960s there were up to 120 air-ferry movements daily. Silver City Airways became part of British United Airways (BUA) in January 1963 and was renamed British United Air Ferries (BUAF).
