National Airlines is an airline based in Titsensaki and Pasadena. It is owned fully by NewEnterprise. The airline was founded in 2017 after the merger between FernAir and GreyAir, who were both encountering financial issues joined together to form National Airlines.
Both FernAir and GreyAir filed for bankruptcy on the same day, being October 9th, 2017. Both airlines were notified this and caught the attention of one another. Both airlines had similar styles and the CEOs of the companies had regularly worked with one another's company in business and stocks. Calculations showed that a merger would allow for profit to be made again, assuming the correct business decisions were made. After a few weeks of planning between the two airlines, they officially merged on October 20th, 2017, and ordered a bulk order of Nexjet 10xs to lower prices. On October 21st, National Airlines flew for the first time under it's own name out of Titsensaki Regional Airport using the new Nexjet planes. In January of 2018, National Airlines was bought by NewEnterprise for $1 as they were owned by the same people.
At first, National Airlines based primarily out of Titsensaki Regional (known as Titsensaki International at the time) and had secondary bases in Fort Yaxier and Birchview. With the construction of new airports, they now base out of Titsensaki Regional Airport, Pasadena Airfield, and most notably, Titsensaki Sealerwhale International Airport, being the largest and holding more than 50% of all destinations.
2020 was an eventful year for National Airlines. Due to bad relationships between National Airlines and the Mojang State following multiple disagreements, all flights to Deadbush were suspended in August 2020. The ban lasted exactly one year, and flights to Deadbush resumed in August of 2021. Multiple boycotts were also placed on the airline by people and organizations in early 2020 due to its role in the construction of angled gates at Las Playas International Airport and extortionate prices for gates at Sealerwhale Airport. All bans were later lifted.
The rebrand of the PRP to the National Party in August 2020 lead to National Airlines' suing them twice in court, stating trademark infringement on the logo. Both cases were dropped in the end. The party was given trademark rights by National Airlines for a grand total of four "Awoooo"s ($1,530 MRTD).

Accidents and Incidents
- On August 19th, 1986, FernAir flight 3 from Fort Yaxier to the abandoned old world city of Timbuktu, crashed just north of the takeoff runway. This was caused by a contaminated fuel pipe that led to the explosion of engine 1. The plane hit the snowy ground and then hit a side of a cliff, killing all three pilots. The aircraft was a 747-200. Out of 399 passengers aboard the flight, 120 people died, along with another 60 injured, eight of those were serious, and two life threatening. No cabin crew members survived, however, the air marshall did. This was the worst air disaster in Fort Yaxier's history.
- On December 1st, 2000, GreyAir flight 106 originating out of Epsil was en route to Wazamawazi. The operating plane was a ADZ II550 Citationjet. Two hours before landing in to Wazamawazi, engine 2 separated causing all hydraulics to fail. The plane was uncontrollable, and then starting to nose dive in to the ground along with rapid decompression. The pilot manages to get the plane out of the dive, but it was too late, and the plane stalled in to the ocean, killing all 11 passengers. The pilot survived but died after three days in hospital.
- On January 2nd, 2019, National Airlines (Njet 10X) flight 8 on short final in to Freedon suffered a hydraulic failure, causing the rudder to stop working. This also caused the already lowered landing gear to collapse on landing. This happen because the pilots over worked the plane’s hydraulics and the wires snapped. Out of 76 passengers and 5 crew on board, there were 2 minor injuries.
