NW Avia was an airline based at Peski (airport) in Petrozavodsk. It was the only air company in the Republic of Karelia. Its main purpose was aerial fire-fighting (for which it is licensed,[3] it was part of Avialesookhrana) although it did perform other typical aerial services (including pipeline and forest patrols, medical flights and search-and-rescue), scheduled and charter passenger flights[4] (commenced in 2009[5]) and charter cargo services. NW Avia was undergoing reorganization with massive debts (~10 million rubles, it peaked at ~22 million rubles) and was the largest debtor in the Republic of Karelia.[6] The airlines ceased to exist on July, 1, 2014.[7]
