HC Deb 01 February 1956 vol 548 c909
40. Mr. Woodburn

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation how soon he expects the Britannia to be in service; and for what routes he has approved its use.

Mr. Profumo

I understand that British Overseas Airways Corporation expects to have Britannias in service on the route to South Africa in July or August of this year. The Corporation intends to introduce the Britannia to other routes, beginning with the route to Australia, as deliveries and the completion of training arrangements permit.
