ABOUT
Dan - Air was not only a schedued service airline. Throughout it's history the lion's share of it's business came in the form of charter flights. The airlines of today are free to fly on scheduled services anywhere they like within the EU. The history of the airline is detailed on this site. One the ROUTES section of this site you can find more about what routes Dan - Air flew each year. It also gives a history about how the Inclusive Tour (IT) industry developed in the early years. In short, Tour Operators could charter aircraft in the early years to fly to a destination (Not served by the state owned BOAC or BEA) the Tour Operators could offer passengers a holiday for not lower than the standard return flight on a scheduled service to a nearby airport - If you you think it sounds complex - it was! For example Dan - Air could be chartered by a Tour Operator to fly holidaymakers to Benidorm. They couldn't fly to the nearest airport,at that time,  Barcelona, because it was served by BEA. So they flew into Perpignan in France. Then they were trasported to Benidorm. This made the choice of holiday destinations in the early days on charter flights quite limited as most smaller islands had only one airport! As the rules concerning charter flights got less stringent ailrines like Dan-Air became able to fly into the same airports as scheduled airlines. There were several large tour operators who used Dan - Air. Often large companies chartered an entire aircraft for the entire Summer and even several Summers in advance. Hundreds of other, smalle Tour Operators preferred to wait until the larger companies had booked their requirements and then take the remaining availability. This worked well for everyone concerned. This page on our site lists some of the operators that Dan - Air had associations with. If you know of any more, let us know. admin@danairremembered.com
