|Operating bases||Maputo International Airport|
The airline was established in 1991 but ceased operations afterwards. It was originally named Transairways and later Sabin Air.
Kaya Airlines resumed operations on 29 August 2011, flying within Mozambique. Kaya Airlines restarted operations with flights to a limited number of destinations but hoped to expand the network in the future. In addition to charter flights, the company had started to fly to the island of Inhaca in Maputo and planned to do so to Machangulo and Zongoene. Kaya Airlines was on the List of air carriers banned in the European Union due to its safety issues, preventing it from flying new routes to the European Union for some time.
As of February 2021, the airline ceased operations again with plans to restart services.
