British Caledonian

British Caledonian was an airline. Originally a subsidy of British Airways, which they later sold on to the Carlson group which rebranded the airline simply as 'Caledonian', flight code CKT. The Blue and gold colour sheme of the aircraft remained the same. The airline became part of the JMC group in the late 1990s which resulted in the aircraft forming part of the new JMC AIR fleet. The Caledonian name and colours were lost to the new bright green colours of JMC. JMC Air changed name again for the summer season of 2002 to THOMAS COOK AIRLINES. Thomas Cook retired the former Caledonian DC-10s that were in their fleet, replacing them with Airbus A330-200s. Thomas Cook Airlines still operates some of the newer A320ss that were delivered to Caledonian shortly before their takeover by the JMC group.
