History

LAA Air Andorinhões was established, as Martlet Airlines in 1959 as the national carrier of the Republic of Martlet. In 1971, following the proclamation of the Socialist Republic of the Martlets Islands, the airline became a public (state-owned) company. It once again changed its name in 1973 to LAA Air Andorinhas and was rebranded to its current name in 1992.

In 2007, the Andorinhean government signed an agreement with the CAA Airlines Corporation of the Andorinhões. The new administration discontinued the hub at São João das Ilhas International Airport and moved the arline's hub to Ernesto Coelho International Airport. In 2009, CAA officially acquired a majority of shares, becoming the majority owner of the company.
