As part of an aggressive push to become Italy’s leading airline, Meridiana has been rebaptized as Air Italy in a major rebranding campaign that aims to expand the carrier’s fleet to 50 aircrafts by 2022.

The announcement was made recently by Qatar Airways, which holds a 49 per cent stake in the company, and presents another blow to Italy’s beleaguered, flagship carrier Alitalia, which is currently under bankruptcy protection.

To start, long-haul routes on Air Italy will include flights from Milan to New York, Miami and Bangkok, along with new short-haul routes connecting Milan to Rome, Naples, Palermo, Catania and Lamezia Terme.

Other international destinations in the network include Accra, Cairo, Dakar, Havana, Lagos, Mombasa, Moscow and Zanzibar.
