Albanian Airlines MAK Sh. p.k. trading as Albanian Airlines was an airline based in Tirana, Albania. It operated scheduled international services. Its main hub was Tirana International Airport Nënë Tereza. The airline was established in May 1991 under the name of Arberia Airlines, it was later renamed to Albanian Airlines in May 1992 and started open operations to the public on 20 June 1995. Albanian Airlines was privatised in the same year and sold to Kuwait-based M.A. Kharafi & Sons Group. As a result, it was restructured in 1997 when its operations were based on a single Airbus A320 aircraft leased from Shorouk Air of Egypt. By 2001 it operated a fleet of four Tupolev Tu-134 aircraft on scheduled services from Tirana to Bologna, Frankfurt, Istanbul, Pristina, Rome and Zürich. In July 2001, Albanian Airlines started upgrading its fleet by gradually removing its Tupolev aircraft and acquired its first BAe 146. Two more BAe 146 were added in 2003 and 2004. This upgrading process allowed the company to expand to new strategic markets such as Belgium and Germany. In 2009, the carrier saw the addition of aircraft of two Boeing 737 as well as one Boeing 757, all of which were leased from Air Slovakia. Due to Financial problems, on 11 November 2011 Albania’s Civil Aviation Authority revoked the license of Albanian Airlines, including the repossession of all leased aircraft from Air Slovakia.
