Martinaire Aviation, L.L.C. is an American cargo airline based on the grounds of Addison Airport in Addison, Texas, USA, near Dallas.[1] It operates feeder flights for overnight package delivery services, most notably on behalf of UPS.[2] It is owned by Xwing.


The airline was established and started operations in 1978 and acquired the freight operations of CCAir on 2 January 1990. It was in turn bought by a group of investors led by The Acker Group in December 1993. In 2005, Martinaire acquired fellow package carrier Mid Atlantic Aviation.[2] In 2006, Martinaire acquired Superior Aviation of Lansing, Michigan. In 2011 Martinaire began acquiring Beechcraft 1900 aircraft to replace the Fairchild Metroliner, a move completed by mid-2012. The Beech 1900 aircraft were later removed and sold to Alpine Air. As of January 2013, Martinaire is the second-largest single feeder carrier in the country.

The company was acquired by autonomous aircraft company Xwing in 2022.[3]
