Alidair operated from January 1972 to March 1981 when, after a name change, they became the short-lived Inter City Airlines, lasting only until August 1983.
North Sea operations began in 1975 for Alidair with two Viscounts based at Aberdeen chartered to Burmah Oil and Total.
On March 11th 1976, the Viscount G-ARGR sustained propeller damage on landing at Sumburgh. There were no injuries.
During 1979 Alidair Viscounts carried 67,300 people between Shetland and Aberdeen.
After the collapse of Inter City Airlines in 1983, British Air Ferries (BAF) took over the oil contract.
