JSC "Donavia" (Russian: ОАО «Донавиа»), formerly Aeroflot-Don (Russian: ОАО «Аэрофлот-Дон»), is an Aeroflot subsidiary airline based in Rostov-on-Don, Russia. It operates scheduled domestic and international passenger flights network as well as passenger and cargo charters, most of which to the Middle East. Its main bases are Rostov-on-Don Airport and Mineralnye Vody Airport (after Kavminvodyavia bankruptcy).

It absorbed the Rostov assets of the Soviet airline Aeroflot, and was one of many such "Babyflots" to emerge in the early 1990s. However, the airline was purchased by Aeroflot in 2000 and started operations under the Aeroflot-Don name on 13 April 2000. On 25 September 2009, the airline was once again renamed Donavia.
