Air Italy has un­veiled the car­rier’s new livery. The Air Italy name was pre­vi­ously used by a sub­s­di­ary of Merid­i­ana, but will now be the brand for the Merid­i­ana group as a whole, with a new livery that takes the ma­roon colour used by Qatar Air­ways. The Qatari air­line ac­quired a 49 per cent share in Merid­i­ana in 2016.

It is un­der­stood the new Air Italy will in­crease its fleet to some 50 air­craft in the com­ing years, by leas­ing B737 Max 8, A330 and B787 air­craft from Qatar Air­ways. These will en­able Air Italy to rapidly ex­pand its net­work of do­mes­tic and in­ter­na­tional ser­vices, com­pet­ing with legacy car­rier Alitalia. air­i­
