It was founded in 1998 and has its headquarters at Syktyvkar.

There are talks within the government of Komi Republic to spilt Komiaviatrans into two separate entities. The first would be an airline that operates similarly within the structure that Komiaviatrans does now. And the second would be a 'second unit' operating the local airports.
While details on the split are still disclosed, governor Sergey Gaplikov did state that splitting Komiaviatrans into an airline and airport operator will bring stability to the business and described it as a 'necessary measure'.
