Hi guys, I created this topic in order to discuss airline names, either from the real world or from the fictional / virtual world.

Qantas means Queensland and Northern Territory Aerial Services; ANA means All Nippon Airways; Lufthansa means Air Hansa (?)(for the Hanseatic League), so yeah, all of these airlines names have something to do with their home countries.
 
Now, about Entaro: No.
The name itself might sound good, yes it's true, but as a Brazilian, I can say that this meaning is complete nonsense.
Em português bem claro: esse nome não funciona. Transporte Aéreo e Rotas? Não faz sentido léxico; se ao menos fosse Transporte de Rotas Aéreas, pelo faria um pouco mais de sentido, mas ainda assim seria muita redundância.
 
For me, it's a no

Seriously though. How does one get original with an airline name? It's always either something-Air, or something-Avia, or something-Airlines. Or something-Jet, if you're a low cost carrier. Are there any interesting ones that broke the mold? And if no - how can one do it in a marketable way?

you gotta have like a play on words. There's this one Airline that I saw with the name "MexiGo!" and it's probably the best name i've seen.

...which works better with LCCs than full service airlines.

There's no reason you have to use "air" instead of "sky." Or "air" in the language of whatever your airline's HQ is.

Real world examples:

British charter airline "Dan-air" got its name from it's owners Davis and Newton.

British charter/schedules airline Laker Airways was named after founder, Freddy Laker.

 

BEA's charter subsidiary was named BEA Airtours, when BEA and BOAC merged it became British Airtours. At the time my father was the Company Secretary at Airtours. That Christmas he built two Airfix 707 models that he painted in possible new liveries, one on each side so four in total, ready for a board meeting.
