Asmirivair is the national carrier of Asmiriva. Founded in 1962 under the name Asmiriva Civil Aviation, the airline was established as a state-owned enterprise in April 1989. Asmirivair is headquartered in Baotou, with hubs at Agadir, Baotou, Khovd and Uliastai airports. The airline flies to 153 destinations in 60 countries, excluding codeshared services.
From its inception until the early 1990s, Asmirivair was a minor carrier within the aviation industry as it was hampered by a variety of factors including the socio-economic and political situation of the country. With the government's normalization of relations with Euphemian countries and Peilan, the airline was able to expand, improve its products and services, and modernize its ageing fleet.
Asmirivair became a member of Adonian Arrow in June 2010, making it the sole Central Althenan carrier to have joined that alliance, pending the admission of Forgian Airways.
