The vast majority of BUA's Herald fleet came to them with the acquisition of Jersey Airlines in May 1962. Jersey Airlines also had two Heralds on order at the time of the merger and these were delivered in BUA livery in 1963. The Herald fleet carried a large number of scheduled passengers and this increased BUA's total scheduled passenger tally to above that BOAC, BUA were 24th in the world (July 1962) and they also had a total capacity double that of the next largest independent airline at the time, Cunard-Eagle.

Here we see G-ASBP outside the hangars at Gatwick. BUA made a move into executive aircraft when on 16th March 1962 they ordered an executive version of the Handley Page Herald. G-ASPB was delivered in November 1962, she stayed in the BUA fleet for four years before being sold in November 1966 via Handley Page to an operator in the Philippines.
