RoAir was established by Yrreb in 2009, as an intention to fly, as put in words by yrreb: "My Dream is Simply... to Fly".
In May of 2014, RoAir shut down its entire operations after yrreb, the airline's CEO, believed that the entire community has changed, but there were many factors into ROBLOX's resignation. However, in December, yrreb brought back RoAir as RoAir International Airlines. He said that because of this, SST Airlines will be shut down to reactivate RoAir International Airlines flights like how RoAir originally did theirs.
The Actual Airline
RoAir started operations between Britain and Robloxia. By 2011, Yrreb decided to expand their flights into the US(where RoAir gets its highest peak of passengers), Canada, and other parts of Europe. In order to do their desired Trans-Atlantic flights, RoAir needed to buy some wide-body aircraft. RoAir chose the A330 because of its ability to fly over 5000 miles.
The Airline's Flights Expand, so does the Group
Yrreb's group was small back then, and planes were just being built, airports being created. In mid-2011, RoAir hit it's 1,000th member, making it the biggest aviation group [then] on ROBLOX. In 2012, RoAir had 4k Members before a mass-exile following Yrreb's intentions to quit RoAir, it now has over 1k members. After all that the group actually got most of its members back. In 2011, user Darwin12 joined RoAir, with an intention to help make it better, soon after he was made an executive of the group and began to run ads, which worked in helping to get RoAir up to 1 thousand members, and later up to 3000 and 4000. This was the time when RoAir was at it's peak of joining.
RoAir was prone to hackers and exploiters.
Notable hackers and exploiters that actually affected the span of RoAir included DrShrink, Potatoicecream1337, Onionicecream1337, 4T3HW1N, and SirAircraftEngineer. Exploits beginning in Late 2011 by users DrShrink and Potatoicecream1337 (same person) caused Yrreb to begin to fear that the group was in trouble, at this point, Darwin12 had [pretty much] gone inactive and Yrreb only had 7 executives and user Coxyoo to help him support the group.
DrShrink/PotatoIceCream1337 had the same intention, and stole Yrreb's planes and places and publicized them. Later, Yrreb announced he would be quitting RoAir.
This Could've Affected 2012
DrShrink was the one that hacked yrreb's account and stole the planes. Apparently, authorities of the UK told us that on the news. As soon as Darwin12 gone inactive, it was almost like if RoAir would be gone, RoAir wasn't gone because all of its 7 executives were working hard within the group.
However, there was one problem. If you thought DrShrink was bad, 4T3HW1N was worse. 4T3HW1N hacked the group and at least 800 of the 900 members of the group that were exiled. At least one-fourth of those reported to ROBLOX, but ROBLOX did not do anything about it. 4T3HW1N was in the US when the hacking took place, and many feared that 4T3HW1N was the user that hacked yrreb. That's not what happened. 4T3HW1N was eventually stopped by T3HB345tW1N5, Airlinefreak69, wyattbot123, Engine69, and many UK authorities over a year after. 4T3HW1N was detained instantly after leaving his plane at the gate in London.
4T3HW1N was IP banned the next day.
RoAir needed help. Big time. In March 2012, JetEire began a codeshare agreement with RoAir and Qantas joined in the agreement a week after. Jolteon Airlines has getting a bunch of hate messages from JetEire and a few from RoAir. The truth was that the two worst airlines of the airline industry have a codeshare agreement with each other and Qantas.
RoAir Comes Back
After 900 members were exiled, Darwin12 took control of the group, with communication with Yrreb being very high, Yrreb stated that this wasn't the last that the aviation industry would see of him. Right now, RoAir has over 1,000 members and is increasing slowly.
In mid to late 2012, Yrreb announced that he would be coming back to RoAir. After this, Darwin12 gave the group back to Yrreb. Then Yrreb stated that operations would start in 2013. Later in 2013, Yrreb's account got hacked, so he made a new account called YrrebRBLX. RoAir now has 1000+ members, and is still growing rapidly.
Yrreb was hacked by DrShrink, and late in 2013, DrShrink was sent to prison. That's all the hacking.
RoAir Shuts Down
In 2014, RoAir shut down. Yrreb has stated that the ROBLOX Community has changed since when the airline was founded in 2009.
However, there were many factors that led to the closing down of RoAir.
- In 2014, RoAir, Aegean Airlines, JetEire, and Air Attica had their airports hacked by SirAircraftEngineer.
- Yrreb has stated that all flights were free. This has caused extreme lawsuits.
- In 2013, 4T3HW1N hacked Yrreb. Yrreb was forced to make a new account called YrrebRBLX due to ROBLOX's negligence to Non-BCs.
- Like JetEire, RoAir experienced numerous hate.
- All of RoAir's airports were exploited and put as public. (Trust me, I checked.)
- After SirAircraftEngineer and ekoocRBLX(same person) have hacked RoAir, RoAir ended up getting less passengers.
RoAir Comes Back Again
In December, RoAir came back to existence. Despite the fact that every single one of RoAir's airports at the time of shut down was put onto public domain, yrreb built some new airports for RoAir to operate at that weren't yet on public domain.
Ever since RoAir came back, RoAir no longer experienced so much hate and a British airline like them called Dale Link was the airline that was experiencing all of the hate.

All 238 passengers and crew on board on the JetEire flight were killed, as well as 4 on the ground. The RoAir plane ended up losing a lot of its tail, so it returned to the terminal. ATC error and lack of instructions of the JetEire pilot were to blame.
