File Description: Lease Air Ltd, trading as Eastern Airways, commenced operations in 1973. It operated various aircraft on behalf of corporate customers as well as owning a small fleet of DC-3's and went on to become a scheduled service operator with services from Humberside. In the early 1980's its scheduled air services Humberside to Heathrow via Norwich, re-introduced the DC-3 on scheduled services into Heathrow, a sight that had not been seen for some time. In 1982 the business was sold to General Relays and the operating name changed to "Genair". The company was a founder member of "British Caledonian Commuter Division". The DC-3's were replaced on scheduled services by Shorts 330/360 aircraft but remained on the fleet operating passenger and cargo charter flights until the company ceased trading in 1984. Throughout their time with the company the DC-3's remained in the Eastern Airways colours.
