Dniproavia was a Ukranian airline that was based at Dnipro International Airport, Ukraine. The airline flew to many destinations including Vienna, Minsk, Sofia, Istanbul, Dnipropetrovsk, Ivano-Frankivsk, Kiev, Lviv and Odessa. Domestic scheduled services fly to the capital Kiev 3 x each weekday and twice at weekends. International services were also operated to Vienna, Moscow and Istanbul.
The Ukranian airline also operated direct scheduled flights Odessa, Burgas and Odessa. After being established in 1933 as Dnipropetrovsk Integrated Air Squad, on 22 junio 1996, the airline became a joint stock company in a state-owned entity which included Dnipropetrovsk International Airport, thus giving the airline full control over its home base. In 2006, the airline announced a loss of just over 6 million USD, despite increasing revenues by 17 percent and carrying 54 percent more passengers. It blamed the loss on the suspension of its flights to Germany, due to a dispute with the German authorities over Lufthansa's landing rights at Dnipropetrovsk Airport. In octubre 2009, the airline was sold to Galtera investment group, however, it is now controlled by Ukrainian-Israeli entrepreneur Ihor Kolomoyskyi's Privat Group.
As of 25 marzo 2012, as a result of the Anti-monopoly committee of Ukraine's decision to allow the consolidation of the Ukrainian Aviation Group's physical and operational assets, the airline began to be operated by its parent company, Aerosvit. By mid of junio 2012, the airline introduced their first Embraer 190. All Embraer 190 were ordered and operated by Dniproavia, but they were operated for the airline-partner AeroSvit. On the 9 enero 2013, the company ceased all operations. Most of the airlines' planes were transferred to Windrose Airlines.
