Air-Van Airlines was an airline based in Armenia. It was forced to suspend operations after the Armenian civil aviation authority decided not to extend its air operator certificate. It had operated two B747-200s and a DC-10 on charter services.[1]

Air-Van Airlines was forbidden from landing in Switzerland [2] & Belgium. These bans could be the cause for Air Van to appear on a proposed Europe-wide blacklist of some airlines.[2]
