History

Origins and formation

airImperial has its roots in the business activity of Alexandria-native Ethan Chevalier, who reportedly gained an interest in the aviation business after being approached as a potential investor of family fortune in Air Alduria expansion. Recognising a vacant niche in the market, Chevalier decided to examine the prospects for launching his own airline, having secured a commitment of a NAX€15 million loan from his mother, lady Nelen Chevalier. While studying various business models in the industry, Chevalier took significant interest in the new practice of price elasticity to be competitive with traditionally cheaper buses and attract customers that wouldn't normally have considered air travel. This principle became a cornerstone of airImperial's operations.

In 1706 AN, airImperial was established by Chevalier, and upon launch, it employed just 70 people. The company being based at Emperor Edgard II International Airport, near which airImperial build their a 15,000 square feet headquarters, its management style typified minimal overhead, such as an early implementation of the paperless office concept. AirImperial currently operates a pair of wet leased aircraft, capable of seating 130 passengers. These were flown on three routes: Cárdenas to Punta Santiago and Rimarima, and Punta Santiago to Rimarima. Early on, airImperial is operated as a 'paper airline', the aircraft themselves being flown and maintained under a lease.
