Aininian (French: Aininien), formally Aininian Aerial Transportation Corporation, Ltd. (French: Société aininienne de transport aérien, lté), is Ainin's national state-owned flag carrier.

Formed in 1928 as Aininian Overseas Air Lines, it operated all flights in and to Aininian Notasia. Throughout the 1930s, it began adding flights across Esquarium, to countries such as Namor, Vyvland and East Luziyca. The onset of the Second Great War in 1941 led to a suspension of most aviation activities, but after the war, the airline quickly recovered to its prewar position and, using aircraft with increasingly longer range, began extending its overseas operations. In 1980, a major recession caused the airline to default on its debts, allowed to go unchecked due to rapid growth over the past decades, and it was bought out by the the government and merged with the state-owned airline, Aininian National, to form Aininian.

Today, Aininian is Ainin's largest airline and, as a founding member of Sapphire Alliance, a key player in the industry. It also operates the Nautasia-focused airline Aininian South as a wholly-owned subsidiary and the brand Aininian Express for its associated regional airlines. Its main domestic rival is Air Ainin.
