History

The airline was established and started operations in 1961 as a charter company with a Douglas DC-6[1] 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. The Douglas DC-6 is a piston-powered airliner and transport aircraft built by the Douglas Aircraft Company from 1946 to 1959. ...

Its fleet was mostly employed in charter work throughout Europe. 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 the early 1990s, it was an unsuccessful take-over target of the Albert Group led by Evan Hammer.

Adria - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (498 words)
Adria is a town in the province of Rovigo in the Veneto region of Northern Italy, situated between the mouths of the rivers Adige and Po.
Under Roman occupation the town lost importance to the former Greek colony Ravenna as the continued siltation of the Po delta carried the seafront farther to the east.
The collections of the Bocchi family were given to the public at the beginning of the twentieth century and comprise a major part of the city museum collection of antiquities.
