Tafa Air was a failed low-cost airline project based in Tirana, Albania, focusing on Albanians living abroad (mostly in Germany). The airline was set up by Albanian businessman Taf Tafa and was supported by Albanian and Kosovan shareholders. Services commenced on 18 December 2009, with scheduled flights out of Tirana International Airport and Pristina International Airport to Athens International Airport.[1][2]

In early February 2010, Tafa Air was forced to suspend operations again, when Lithuanian airline flyLAL Charters discontinued the aircraft lease contract that provided Tafa Air with its only airplane. Tafa originally announced to restart services in late March or early April of the same year, but the company has dissolved since then.[3]

Fleet[edit]

Tafa Air operated its flights using a leased Boeing 737-300.[4]
