Princess Air was a British charter airline between 1989 and 1991 with headquarters at Southend-on-Sea in Essex and an operating base at Southend Airport.
Formed by a local tour operator Burstin Travel, the company started operations in 1990 using a quick change (passenger/freighter) variant of the BAe 146-200.
It operated charter flights from Southend and Bournemouth Airport to holiday destinations in Europe.
At night the aircraft operated freight flights between Cologne and Brussels.
Due to the economic situation the airline ceased operation in February 1991.
