Linreqiyan Peyan (Ingerish: Peyan Skylines), known most commonly as simply Peyan, is the primary airline in and flag carrier of Mauretia. Its focus is primarily international flights with secondary commuter service between the four international airports in the country. Its primary hub is the Portureqiyun Internatio Iola (Iola International Skyport), from where most international flights are based. It also serves the Portureqiyun Tangereyi in Tangia and Portureqiyun Salda–Kabyea with international flights. Its operations to and from Pomalia are domestic only. Although the most traveled airline in Mauretia by passenger numbers, it does not service any other airport in the country and has no domestic luxury air division.


The main headquarters of Linreqiyan Peyan is in Iola just outside the Portureqio Internatio Iola. It connects directly to its major maintenance and docking facilities. The company has a secondary maintenance facility in Khaiwoon that it shares with other alliance members. The airline services the four international domestic airports and XX international locations. The airline only provides service to Archanta at Rivador and via alliance members. Previous routes were cancelled in part due to limited ridership, and a diplomatic incident caused by the downing of Flight 994 over Commonia.

The company was founded in 1939 under its current name. Peyan in Maurit means "wings" in the dual form. The term "linreqiyan" was chosen as it literally means "lines in the sky." Use of 'air' in the name was apparently never considered given the nuances of the Maurit language. Given the difficulty of the word "linreqiyan" in many other languages, it advertises internationally as simply "Peyan." It has come to be known by this name alone in colloquial speech domestically, as well.


Domestic services

Linreqiyan Peyan offers flights between all four of its domestic destinations:

  • Iola International Skyport (principal hub)
  • Portureqio Tangerinu (secondary hub)
  • Portureqio Pomalia–Meloke Massuna
  • Portureqio Salda–Kabyea

The company provides no additional flights to other small airports. A limited additional service, however, has historically been added to Masqula from Tangia and Salda for the weekend of major sporting championships. The most heavily traveled route is between Iola and Tangia. The Iola–Pomalia route is the second busiest. Flight service to Salda is the most limited from Iola. The Salda–Tangia route is the third most-traveled route.

International services

Linreqiyan Peyan offers direct flights from Mauretia to 22 international locations across Uletha and Tarephia. Five of the locations are available with connections through Bărădin or Khaiwoon on a tourism-dictated seasonal basis. Flights to nearby countries, such as Egani and Vodeo, generally carry the most passengers. The history, positive relations, and other cultural ties make these locations particularly popular. Those in the Mauro diaspora across Tarephia and southern Uletha primarily tend to fly on this airline.

Peyan used to have more regular long-haul service to locations in Archanta. After an international incident over Commonian airspace, and the fallout between Commonian–Maureti relations, Peyan temporarily ceased all service to the continent. The airline has reintroduced periodic flights from Khaiwoon to Rivador and announced plans to resume long-haul service to the Federal States (with continuations to Aorangëa and New Ingerland).

Flights to and from Iola

Service from Iola exists to 30 international destinations in 28 countries.

Linreqiyan Peyan flight 996 was shot down on 17 October 1999 over the southwestern Commonian rain forest, while en route from Khaiwoon to New Ingerland. The plane exploded mid-air, killing all 152 people aboard. The nominal government of Commonia declared its innocence but would not allow Maureti personnel into the interior of the country to retrieve the bodies or wreckage, citing "danger from insurgent groups." It was later revealed that a Commonian general shot down the plane in an effort to kill two Gobrassi passengers aboard that it deemed as "international techno-terrorists." The Commonian government denied telling the general about the two individuals, who had actually missed their previous flight in Khaiwoon. It was later revealed that Commonian military intelligence ordered the strike and destroyed the remains on the ground to prevent recovery. The incident caused a rift in Commonian–Maureti relations. To this day, Mauretia denies entry of Commonian goods and persons. Products made elsewhere with documented Commonian parts are not permitted to be sold in the country either. A memorial was built outside the Iola airport in honor of those whose bodies were never recovered.
