Airline OF THE EMPIRE - Vintage British Aviation Posters between - Imperial Airways was merged into the British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC) in which in turn merged with the British European Airways Corporation to form British Airways.

Imperial Airways Limited was formed by the British government on 31 March 1924, after a government report recommended that Britain's interests in commercial air transport would be best served by merging the larger existing aircraft companies. The four companies concerned were Handley Page Transport, the Instone Airline, Daimler Airway and British Marine Air Navigation, all four of which had struggled to operate at a profit.
