Arrow Air was founded in 1950, as an all-cargo operator. Passenger services were adopted by the late 1970s and early 1980s, both on a charter and regular scheduled service basis. Arrow Air had many passenger flights from JFK International Airport in New York and from Luis Munoz Marin International Airport in San Juan at the time, using Lockheed Tristar as well as McDonnell Douglas DC-10 and DC-8 equipment at the time.

On December 12 of 1985, an Arrow Air DC-8 carrying American military personnel on a charter flight home for Christmas crashed in Newfoundland, killing all 258 passengers on board.

During the 1990s, Arrow Airs management decided to return the airline to being an all-cargo operator once again. In 2000, it merged with Fine Air, but it remains flying under the name Arrow Air, and it serves parts of the United States, the Caribbean and South America. Fine Air also still operates under its own name.

Model airplane-wise, Arrow Air has contracts with many toy airplane companies, such as Herpa Wings and others.
