Eagle Airways Ltd was formed in 1953 as schedule services division of Eagle Aviation Ltd created in 1948 for non-scheduled operations, passenger and freight charters including trooping flights. The company operated a large fleet of Vickers Vikings purchased from BEA.
In 1958, Eagle Airways acquired the first three of an eventual six Douglas DC-6s for long-range charter and scheduled operations. In March 1960, the Cunard Steamship Company bought a 60% shareholding resulting in a change of name to Cunard Eagle Airways. The support from this new shareholder enabled Cunard Eagle to become the first British independent airline to operate pure jet airliners, as a result of a £6 million order for two new Boeing 707 passenger aircraft. The company changed its name to British Eagle International Airlines in 1963.
