The second Volume of Direction of Travel looks at three European airlines that have not survived. They either went bankrupt, stopped flying due to political changed or merged and thus lost their original identity in the process.
British European Airways (BEA) served Europe and beyond and was the sister airline of B.O.A.C. The two merged in 1974 and became what we know today as British Airways.
Interflug served former East Germany from its base at Schönefeld airport until the collapse of the Berlin Wall in 1989.
Sabena served Belgium as its defacto national carrier until its bankruptcy in 2001 for various reasons, one of them being the slowdown in global air travel after 9/11.
We picked these three because they tell a story of a changing Europe and each also produced interesting maps, without which we would be unable to tell that story.
