Sata has been flying since August 21, 1941. In the past, it used to be known as Sata Air Acores , but its first name was Sociedade Acoriana de Estudios Aereos (Azorean Society of Aerial Studies).
In 1947, the airline flew its first flight, with one passenger aboard, between the Azorean islands of Sao Miguel and Santa Maria.
In 1994, the ICAO celebrated 50 years as an organization by awarding medals to each airline they felt had done the most significant contribution to aviation in their country, and SATA International was their choice in Potugal.
Nowadays, both names of Sata Internacional and Sata Air Acores continue to be used by the company, with Air Acores being a domestic sub-division of Sata International.
