100th Anniversary of the Worlds First International Passenger Service

Aircraft Transport and Travel Limited (AT&T) was a British airline formed on 5th October 1916 by George Holt Thomas during the First World War.

George Holt Thomas had also founded Airco which was an Aircraft Manufacturing company in 1912 producing thousands of aircraft, many of which were designed by Geoffrey de Havilland.

AT&T began using a fleet of former military Airco DH.4A biplanes, and relief flights flew between Folkestone and Ghent. These planes had been modified to include a small space in the fuselage with room for two passengers. The pilot’s cockpit remained open to the elements. 

Through takeovers and mergers over the years, it is said that British Airways can trace part of it’s legacy to Aircraft Transport and Travel.
