David Steen: “Freddie pioneered cheap flights to the continent and to America with his Sky Train. I initially photographed him with the planes at Gatwick Airport and then with his racehorses. Freddie had a great lifestyle, enjoyed every day. When he invited me to Majorca, to spend time with him on his yacht Tutinella, I was there in a flash. Swanning around the Mediterranean with Freddie…what a life!”

 

Sir Frederick Alfred Laker (6 August 1922 – 9 February 2006) was a British airline entrepreneur, best known for founding Laker Airways in 1966, which went bankrupt in 1982. Laker was one of the first airline owners to adopt the “no-frills” airline business model that has since proven to be very successful worldwide with companies such as Southwest Airlines, Ryanair, easyJet, AirAsia, WestJet and Virgin Australia.
