Air Italy and LATAM Brasil, the Brazilian brand of LATAM Airlines Group, have entered into a codeshare agreement, the two airlines announced this week.
With effect from November 21, Air Italy’s code will be placed on the LATAM flights between Milan Malpensa and São Paulo. In turn, LATAM adds its ‘LA’ number on services to seven Italian airports such as Rome, Palermo or Naples.
Air Italy was previously known as ‘Meridiana’ and is a subsidiary of AQA Holding, owned by Alisarda (51%) and Qatar Airways (49%). The airline commenced operations in March 2018 after the rebranding. Its current fleet is comprised of Boeing 737 aircraft (both MAX and NG versions). Furthermore, Airbus A330 and Boeing 767-300 aircraft are used on long-haul flights. Earlier this year, Air Italy added new transatlantic connections from its hub at Milan Malpensa Airport to the US cities New York and Miami.
