British Caledonian Charter was formed in 1982, it was a joint venture between British Caledonian and the Rank Organisation. Rank had many interests in the holiday markets, operating a number of tour companies.

The name went through a number of changes, BCA Charter and finally the name was changed to Cal Air International, though the aircraft ran with Cal Air titles.

The idea was formed to fill a gap in the market place after the demise of Laker Airways in the early 1980ís, and Cal Air was effectively the charter arm of BCal.

Set up to serve the popular holiday destinations in the Mediterranean, the Canaries, Africa and to destinations in the US.

Initially operating with 2 No. DC10 aircraft, both Series 10 variants from the old Laker fleet, a 3rd was added in 1986, this was registered, G-GCAL.

Following the BCal merger into BA in 1988, Rank brought out the BCal share of the airline and became its sole owner, the name Cal Air disappeared and the aircraft re-titled as Novair.
