History

The airline was established and started operations in 1961 as a charter company with a Douglas DC-6 under the name of Adria Aviopromet (Adria Airways). Later, extra DC-6s were bought from KLM. In 1968, the company changed its name to Inex-Adria Airways and introduced its first jet type, the Douglas DC-9. Its name was changed after aligning with Belgrade-based trading group Interexport, but reverted to the original title after that association ended in May 1986.

On September 10 1976, in the worst mid-air disaster to this point, 176 people died when a British Airways Hawker Siddeley Trident and an Inex Adria Douglas DC-9 collided over Zagreb.

In early 1980s, Inex-Adria introduced its first scheduled flights, purchased McDonnell Douglas MD-80 aircraft and became a member of IATA. Its fleet was mostly employed in charter work throughout Europe. On December 1st 1981 Inex-Adria DC-9 crashed in the mountain while approaching Campo Dell'Oro Airport in Ajaccio, Corsica killing 178 Slovenian tourists.

International scheduled flights were added, initially to Larnaca, in November 1983. By the late 1980s, and after the name change back to Adria, it purchased several Airbus A320 aircraft. With the break-up of Yugoslavia, Adria Airways attained the role of Slovenia's flag carrier.

In March 1996 Adria completed its part-privatisation process. On July 23 2002, Bombardier Aerospace appointed Adria Airways as the first Bombardier recognized CRJ heavy maintenance facility in Europe. On November 18, 2004, Adria Airways joined the Star Alliance.
