Interavia Airlines (Russian: Авиакомпания Интеравиа) was an airline based in Moscow, Russia. It operated scheduled and charter passenger services. Its main base was Domodedovo International Airport, Moscow.[1] The Russian aviation authority suspended their flights from 17 October 2008.[2]


The airline was established as Astair Airlines in 1998 and became Interavia Airlines on 18 May 2005.[1] It started regular services from Moscow in July 2005.[3] Interavia Airlines was registered as a corporation with publicly traded stock, with no shares owned by the Russian Government.

Because of financial difficulties, the airline suspended operations on October 9, 2008[4] and shortly thereafter lost its operating licence. Astair only flew with a few (or one) Yakovlev Yak-42.


As at October 2008, Interavia Airlines operated flights to:[5]
