Palestinian Airlines was founded by the Palestinian Government in July 1994.

The flights were originally slated to operate from Gaza, but due to an Israeli ban, the services operated from Port Said, in northern Egypt. Scheduled services began on 23 July 1997, operating from El Arish to Jordan and Saudi Arabia. Palestinian Airlines transferred its base to Gaza following the opening of the airport in November 1998.

Against numerous odds of the uncertain political mood of the Middle East region and in spite of challenges that faced Palestine during the last years, Palestinian Airlines has managed to emerge as an international carrier. Friday, the 10th of January 1997, was one of the most important dates in Palestinian aviation history. Palestinian Airlines flight number (PF 141) took off on that day as the first trip carrying Palestinian pilgrims from Port Saed Airport in Egypt to Jeddah in Saudi Arabia. Two Fokker 50 aircraft had airlifted 325 pilgrims through seven return flights.
