Avair was an independent Irish airline that operated chartered business flights. It also operated a number of scheduled flights within Ireland, on routes such as Cork-Derry, Dublin-Sligo, Dublin-Waterford, Dublin-Cork and Dublin-Derry, availing of some government subsidies.
The airline was granted a number of international routes between Dublin and Blackpool, Nottingham, East Midlands and Leeds Bradford in the UK.
The airline closed in February 1984 after failing to get further government subsidies. Iona National Airways took over some of the routes such as Dublin-Sligo, and many of the internal Irish routes are now operated by Aer Lingus Regional.
