HC Deb 19 February 1958 vol 582 c149W
84. Mr. Hurd

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation if he can now say what provision of aircraft he has approved for use on the South American route to be reopened by the British Overseas Airways Corporation; and when the new service will start.

Mr. Watkinson

No aircraft have been approved specifically for the South American route, but the aircraft on order for the Corporation are intended to provide for these and other services. B.O.A.C. intend to resume services to Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina and Chile across the South Atlantic as soon as they can. The date of resumption is still under consideration, but I hope to be able to make a statement on this very soon.
