Navegacion y Servicios Aéreos Canarios, better known by its initialism NAYSA, is a regional airline based in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, Spain. It operates scheduled and charter flights, as well as cargo flights, air taxis, air ambulance flights and crew transfers. Its main base is Gran Canaria International Airport.


Currently all Naysa aircraft are operated under a franchise agreement as Binter Canarias.


The airline was founded by Alfonso Carrero, it was established and started operations on 7 May 1969 at Córdoba as NAYSA (Navegacion y Servicios Aéreos) and added Canarias to the title when operations in the Canary Islands were started in 1973. The fleet consisted originally of a Lear 35, four Piper Navajo Chieftain, a Piper Aztec, a Piper Cherokee and a PA-18. This company was credited by being one of the first Third Level or Commuter Airlines in Europe. It established the first regular services between the Canary Islands and the Spanish Sahara and linked Madrid Barajas with smaller airports throughout Spain. On 1975 Spain lost the Spanish Sahara and several Government subsidised contracts were lost. The company changed owners in 1977 and transferred its headquarters to Las Palmas. It is owned by Canarias de Aviación (75%) and Serair (25%) and has 28 employees as of March 2007.
