Aviogenex had more than 40 years of experience in flying under charter, sub charter and wet lease agreements. Aviogenex was founded on 21 May 1968 as an air transport division of Generalexport, an enterprise for foreign and domestic trade, tourism and air transport.[2] On 30 April 1969 Aviogenex operated its first flight from Belgrade to Düsseldorf on a Tu-134 aircraft.

In 1990 the airline flew 633,932 passengers, with 10 aircraft (5 Boeing 727 and 5 Boeing 737) reaching 17,000 flight hours per year.[3] Since 1991 Aviogenex has oriented to leasing of aircraft and crews, and achieved more than 40,000 flight hours. In this period Aviogenex operated in Europe, Africa, the Middle and Far East, and South America. In 2010 they restarted flights under their own name using a Boeing 737-200 Advanced.[4]

In February 2015 it was announced that Aviogenex will cease operations to be liquidated as the government failed to attract investors for the airline.[1][5]
