HC Deb 23 November 1938 vol 341 c1785W
Sir M. Sueter

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether his attention has been called to the 400th Lufthansa flight across the Southern Altantic that enabled the mail to arrive in Berlin within 24 hours of leaving Brazil; and how the contemplated Southern Atlantic air service by British Airways is progressing?

Captain Balfour

I am aware that the Duetsche Lufthansa have now made approximately 400 flights across the Southern Atlantic, although I cannot confirm the time mentioned by my hon. and gallant Friend as the average. The first experimental flight to Bathurst by British Airways Limited, is due to leave London on 28th December.
