  • Florida Express was an airline headquartered in Orlando, Florida, United States. Orlando International Airport (MCO) served as the airline's hub with a point-to-point linear route system in the eastern U.S. and Florida. During the mid-1980s, the air carrier operated a small fleet consisting exclusively of British Aircraft Corp. BAC One-Eleven 200 series jet aircraft and employed approximately 385 employees in 1985. On March 1, 1988, Florida Express was merged into the second incarnation of Braniff (also sometimes known as "Braniff II"), initially operating as Braniff Express before being eventually integrated into the carrier. This was second time that Braniff had operated BAC One-Eleven aircraft as the original Braniff International was the first operator and launch customer of the British-manufactured twinjet in the U.S. Several of the BAC One-Eleven jets flown by Florida Express had been formerly operated by Braniff International. After acquiring Florida Express, Braniff then moved their corporate headquarters from Dallas, Texas to Orlando. Braniff also continued to operate a secondary hub at the Orlando International Airport in addition to a primary hub located at the Kansas City International Airport (MCI) until this airline ceased operations due to financial challenges.
