Atlantic Airlines de Honduras was an airline based in La Ceiba, Honduras, which operated domestic and regional passenger flights, mostly out of the city's Golosón International Airport, as well as Toncontín International Airport (Tegucigalpa).
The company was founded in 2001 by Atlantic Airlines, an airline from Nicaragua, using assets from Rollins Air. In October 2008, Atlantic Airlines de Honduras cancelled all flights over allegations of corruption, and the bad safety reputation it had received following the crash of one of its Boeing 737-200 aircraft (registered YV102T) on 30 August of that year, killing the three persons on board. In 2009, the company was disestablished.
The Atlantic Airlines de Honduras fleet mainly consisted of up to six Boeing 737-200 aircraft, as well as twelve Let L-410 Turbolets. Additionally, at a time airliners of the types Fokker F27 Friendship, Fairchild Hiller FH-227 and Hawker Siddeley HS 748 were operated.
