Founded in 1992, Air Alfa was acquired by Kombassan in 1996. With its hub in Istanbul and a fleet of Airbus aircraft, Air Alfa's international route included cities such as Dusseldorf and Munich in Germany; Basel, Switzerland; and Amsterdam, Holland. Its domestic route included the cities of Ankara, Izmir, Antalya, Adana, Trabzon and Dalaman. Plans for the future called for expanding the route system outside Europe, to include the rest of the world.
Air Alfa also provided charter services to tour operators.
A300B4-203 TC-ALP (msn153) is seen here in approach to Amsterdam-SPL in April 1996. This aircraft was written off at Istanbul on May 17th, 1996.
Air Alfa had been in "dire straights" before and cut back on operations, but in December 2001 it had to cease operations again and the aircraft were parked at Istanbul and Antalya. This was the fleet in 2001 (after many previous changes):
