The Bristol Aeroplane Company built the Britannia as a medium-to-long range airliner. BOAC began scheduled service of the Britannia in February 1955 and by 1959 BOAC was flying the Britannia across the Pacific to Tokyo and Hong Kong, thus extending their network around the world. fulfilling the Britannia’s original promise as a long-range international airliner. The main long-range series were the Model 310s, of which BOAC ordered 18 and, after deliveries began in September 1957, put them into service between London and New York in March 1964. BOAC owned 50 aircraft, 10 being Britannia 312s. BOAC's last scheduled Britannia flight was April 1965.
