Adria Airways d.o.o. (formerly Inex-Adria Aviopromet and later Inex-Adria Airways) was the flag carrier of Slovenia, operating scheduled and charter services to European destinations. The company's head office was at Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport in Zgornji Brnik, Cerklje na Gorenjskem, near Ljubljana. The airline was founded in March 1961 as Adria Aviopromet. In December 1968, Adria merged with the Serbian company InterExport based in Belgrade and changed its name to Inex-Adria Aviopromet (Inex-Adria Airways). The airlines entered the 1980s as a respectable company with confirmed success on the tourist market and scheduled internal flights. In May 1981 Adria purchased three new McDonnell Douglas DC-9-80 aircraft. In 1986, Adria left the Inex Group, becoming an independent company and changing its name to Adria Airways.
