Flyht Myrcia is the flag-carrier of Myrcia, with its headquarters in Dunwic and its hub at Dunwic Flyhthæfen International. It is a member of the Geolliance code-sharing alliance. It operates services to destinations in Uletha and Tarephia.

History

Myrcia's position as an island nation led to an early development of passenger flights to the Ulethan mainland in the 1920s and 1930s from a number of aerodromes along the coastline by private operators with single airplanes. The Mercian Airways Corporation (MAC) was established by the government in 1929 to operate twice-daily flights from Wrenport Aerodrome (later Renburh Airport, now closed) to Resoboil in Scandmark.

MAC moved its main focus from Renburh to Dunwic Flyhthæfen International (then Dunwic Peterswic Aerodrome) in 1952 when it started operating jet services to destinations across Uletha and northern Tarephia. The government elected to change the airline's name in 1955 to Myrcian Flyht Myrcia which translates in Ingerish to Flying Myrcia.

Throughout the 1960s and 1970s the airline continued to grow both in the size of its fleet and the scope of destinations available to the Myrcian traveller. Greater international trade and co-operation fostered by the Rihtwísness government of the 1980s saw the growth of business travel across western Uletha, by 1988 the Dunwic - Winburgh route was operating 11 times daily.

Recent years have held mixed fortunes for the airline. The discovery of offshore oil and gas reserves in 1997 led to a further surge in business and leisure travel for FM as more Myrcians were able to afford to visit the continental mainland. Worried by this trend for increased air travel the Filiþléag a Mere coalition of 2004 imposed a hefty air duty which particularly impacted short-haul flights to destinations in Uletha which were served by ferries from the island. As a result of this air travel in Myrcia experienced the first year of negative growth in the 2005-6 financial year.

Flyht Myrcia re-focused its efforts on providing high-quality business travel at a premium cost to mainland Uletha and on developing holiday business on its long-haul services allowing Lyftfléogend, a new low-cost carrier, access to its less profitable routes.
