Long DescriptionBritain’s original independent airlines left an indelible mark on the industry which is still felt to this day. They were the first truly low-cost couriers, and they pioneered the concepts of operating at low costs with targeted marketing, differential prices, and cheap fares. This second volume follows the history of these innovative airlines in the post-war era.

Focus is also provided on manufacturing aspects of the industry, and the 1960 Civil Aviation Act and Air Transport Licensing Board, which together gave way to licensing battles and setbacks.

There are four different types of FIM barcodes, A, B, C and D.

As far as standards are concerned, the FIM has to meet very specific guidelines:
