Meridiana on March 1, 2018 officially became the new version of Air Italy. The old Air Italy was also officially disbanded as an airline entity. It had been leasing aircraft to Meridiana under the Meridiana brand. The start of the new AIR ITALY has coincided with the exit from the fleet of I-SMER, the last of the 18 MD-80 aircraft of the same series, that over 30 years have been protagonists of the history of Alisarda / Meridiana and through out the journeys of its loyal passengers. Airport and staff employees have saluted the take-off from the Olbia Costa Smeralda Airport.
