Air Italy is owned by Alisarda (51%) and Qatar Airways (49%). Its fleet consists of narrowbody and widebody equipment.
In Feb-2018, Meridiana announced it would rebrand to Air Italy as part of a wider business plan to reach 10 million passengers handled p/a by 2022. Eight new aircraft to be added in 2018, comprising three Boeing 737 MAX and five A330-200s. Air Italy confirmed a commitment to receive 20 new 737 MAX aircraft over three years, while the A330s will be sourced from Qatar Airways as it replaces the aircraft with 787s.
