Gagauzia (155711).

The industry is specially concentrated on processing the raw agricultural material, and is also represented by light, chemical, wood processing, machine building industries. The total of industrial production for January-October 2011 increased by 9.1% compare to same period of 2010.

In January-October 2011 transport companies transported around 4.9 million tons of goods – by 24% more than for same period of last year.
The state-owned airline Air Moldova was founded by presidential decree of January 12, 1993.
Air sub-units based in Chisinau airport provided the basis for the airline. Thus the beginning of the company's activity can be counted down from September 19, 1944, when the first unit of transport aircrafts Po-2 arrived to Chisinau and Moldovan independent squadron started to function. Aside from fifteen aircrafts of Po-2 type operating domestic flights and serving in agriculture, at first there were two Li-2, which operated flights to Moscow, some Ukrainian cities and Black Sea and Caucasus summer resorts.
In 1960s some considerable steps in development of the local airline industry were made. New airport in Chisinau put into operation at the beginning of the decade was able to serve gas turbine aircrafts. The enterprise received status of Civil Aviation Administration in 1965 and new aircrafts of An-10, An-12 and An-24 types enlarged its fleet. Regular flights to many cities of the USSR were opened and transportation of fruits and vegetables grown in Moldova to the largest industrial centers of the country was established.
The beginning of 1970s is marked by appearance of jet planes on country's main air lines.
Tu-134 started its operations in 1971 and this aircraft type became the main air liner of the enterprise and the total number of them achieved 26. In Chisinau there even was an all-union test basis for aircrafts of this type. In 1972 regional aircrafts Yk-42 and in 1974 cargo aircrafts An-26 enlarged the fleet. The route map kept expanding and flow of traffic grew.
Further development of Moldovan aviation was conditioned by introduction of Tu-154. In the middle of 1980s the Administration received ten of them. At that time Moldovan aircrafts flew to 73 cities of the USSR and carried over 1.000.000 passengers per year. In 1990 the first international line between Chisinau and Frankfurt-am-Main was opened.
In the beginning of 1990s the restructuring of the Moldovan air industry took place. The single structure was divided into a number of separate enterprises, one of which became airline Air Moldova.
The beginning of 1990s was a time of challenge for Moldovan civil aviation. Reorganization of the industry took place at the time of complicated political situation, essential recession in living standards and breaking-off of existing economic ties. The fuel deliveries were irregular. As a result, the demand for air transportation decreased considerably. Economic indicators of air transportation kept falling and were as low as in 1950s. As a matter of fact, there only existed an air connection between Moldova and Moscow and Tel Aviv at that time. Nevertheless the airline managed to hold out against all hardships of the transitional period.
At the turn of millenniums situation took a turn for the better. New air routes to European countries were opened. For the first time in the last ten years the airline received new aircrafts.
In 2001 modern airliners - Embraer 120 and Embraer 145 were taken on leasing.
In 2003 the airline's image was rebranded.
On May, 10, 2010 Embraer delivered the first Embraer190 jet to Moldovan flag carrier Air Moldova. The deal was announced in February 2008 and includes purchase rights for another Embraer 190. Air Moldova’s Embraer 190 is configured in a 114-seat single class layout, the first to feature in this category. The aircraft will serve the airline’s European and Middle East network, operating from the Moldovan capital of Chisinau. The Embraer 190 is the cornerstone of our development strategy - having the right-sized aircraft to open new routes, complementing our current narrow-body fleet and ensuring passenger comfort.
Air Moldova is the national air carrier and Moldovan largest airline.
Nowadays Air Moldova is one of Moldovan’s most recognized brands.
From its hub at Chisinau International Airport, Air Moldova operates direct flights to 21 destinations.
Air Moldova holds 47% of air transportation market in Republic of Moldova.
In order to meet the constantly growing needs of its passengers, Air Moldova is increasing its fleet. Fleet replenishment with modern airliners Airbus-320 (the first one was received in September, 2003, the second one - in February, 2004 and the third one – in March, 2009) was a remarkable event, which led to substantial increase in passenger and cargo flow. In March 2010, the first time in the history of the Moldovan civil aviation company’s fleet will be replenished with new aircraft - a new Brazilian Embraer-190jet.
Today, Air Moldova is an airline with an excellent safety record and operational reliability. Special quality audits and inspections of flight operations, maintenance, ground operations and training are carried out at least once every year, and Air Moldova’s quality system meets stringent JAR-OPS and Civil Aviation Authority requirements. Auditors are trained in accordance with the international standards in order to fully meet requirements and to provide passengers’ comfort and safety both in the air and on the ground.
On July 13, 2004 Air Moldova became a member of International Association of Air Transport (IATA). Conditions of becoming an IATA member presume high standards in all aspects of the airline activity. Before becoming an IATA member, Air Moldova underwent audits in fields of operations, maintenance, flight safety and quality systems development. Personnel competence was also assessed in order to make sure that Air Moldova meets high standards set by IATA.
In July, 2013, Air Moldova successfully underwent IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) which covers different operational areas as: Management and Control including Safety and Quality Systems, Flight, Dispatch, Maintenance, Cabin, Ground Handling, Cargo and Security Operations.

The cardholders can now spend their bonus-miles not only for free tickets, but for more products and services from program partners.
Air Moldova keeps leading positions in e-marketing. In May 2006, the company implemented e-ticketing on all its flights among the first airlines in CIS. In June 2007 Air Moldova introduced online ticket sales on its web site www.airmoldova.md.
On December, 29th, 2008 Air Moldova has been included in the register of the air carriers which have passed IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA).

In order to be able to claim these miles you should provide information regarding your flights by sending us email on email@example.com or by calling to our centre on: +373 22 57 65 30.
Membership termination may occur if a Member:
- fails to comply with the Air Moldova Club Terms and Conditions
- does not accumulate any Credit Miles during a period of 12 calendar months.
- In case of Air Moldova Club termination, membership to the programme is automatically cancelled.
How to earn
After your enrolment, you will collect Credit Miles every time you check in on Air Moldova flights.
To get the automatic mileage credit, the Member must mention his account number whenever he books a flight, and show his card when he checks-in for his flight.
The amount of Credit Miles you collect will depend on the flown distance and class of service.
If there has been no activity in an Air Moldova Club account for 12 Calendar Months, the Air Moldova Club account is automatically removed from the system, and the Credit Miles accumulated deleted.
Exclusion of Mileage Credit
No miles are credited if the ticket was issued:
- for a charter flight
- at a group discount
- for the children and infants fares
- at promotional fares and special fares with discount ( ID, IP, AD, GE, UD, DG , etc. )
- for award services or free flights which the member receives under bonus programme.
If in error the Credit Miles flown have not been recorded, or have been incorrectly recorded in his or her account, the Member must send to the Air Moldova Club Service Centre the following documents:
- the original boarding card
- the passenger ticket
An Air Moldova Club award ticket is defined as:

- a ticket for which departure and arrival point (final destination) are different (example: Chisinau-Paris/Frankfurt-Chisinau), otherwise known as an open jaw journey, and are valid on Air Moldova flights only.

When a Member has accumulated a sufficient number of Credit Miles to be entitled to an award, they must complete the appropriate request form, mentioning the beneficiary name.
