HistoryEdit

The airline was established and started operations in 1994, initially using a single five-seat Cessna Skymaster for charter flights to Margarita Island and Canaima. It is owned by Jorge Añez Dager (100%).[1]

On 3 December 2017 Avior was added to the List of air carriers banned in the European Union due to failing to meet their safety requirements. [2]
