Head office and Leadership
The Leadership team at Air Italy is as followed:
The Air Italy logo is designed with maroon and mint green colors. The colours are loosely based on the maroon from the Qatar Airways logo. The airline has a specialty design the letter "Y" to look looking somewhat similar to a bird. The airline's livery is a modern white fuselage with the airline logo across the fuselage in a billboard style livery. It also includes a collage of their special designed "Y" letter taken from the logo, on the vertical fin. The letter Y is also present on the aircraft engines.
Air Italy sponsors one professional sports team: the Italian basketball team Dinamo Sassari.
The United States' top 3 airlines, Delta, American Airlines, and United made allegations concerning Air Italy regarding its ownership and its operation since its support from Qatar Airways. Air Italy made a public statement on the issue with a press release on 18 April 2019. Ed Bastian, Chief executive officer of Delta posted an op-ed article on the airline back in December 2018 claiming due to Qatar is a state-funded airline of the Government of Qatar is supporting a near to bankrupt Italian airline "putting thousands of American jobs at risk". A couple of US politicians wrote letters to United States Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, on the situation with Qatar going against a United States-Qatar Open Skies Policy. Air Italy and Qatar Airways denied the allegations and stated that this allegation is because Qatar Airways own 49% stake in Air Italy's Parent Company.
As of February 2019, Air Italy operates to 21 year-round and 5 seasonal destinations in Europe, Africa, Asia and North America. Air Italy aims to fly more than 50 year-round routes by 2022 stated in the airline's 5-year plan. The airline operates most of their flights out of their main hub at Milan Malpensa Airport, and a second operation network out of their focus city at Olbia Costa Smeralda Airport.
Air Italy has codeshare agreements with the following airlines:
|Airbus A330-200||5||2||24||228||252||Additional aircraft to be transferred from Qatar Airways.|
|Boeing 737-700||1||—||—||149||149||To be replaced by Boeing 737 MAX 8.|
In service however due to the ongoing groundings of the MAX
|Boeing 737 MAX 8||3||17||12||174||186||Italian launch customer.|
To replace older Boeing 737-700 and -800 aircraft.
Currently all MAX aircraft are grounded.
After rebranding of the airline as Air Italy, Boeing 737 aircraft that had been operated by Meridiana were used to operate the airline's route network. Air Italy planned to develop its fleet by operating 50 new aircraft by 2022, through sub-leasing 20 Boeing 737 MAX 8s and 30 Boeing 787-8s from Qatar Airways, with entry into service between 2018 and 2022. From 2018 to 2019, Qatar Airways planned to lease five of its own Airbus A330-200s to Air Italy at market rate, with Boeing 787-8s transferred to Air Italy from mid-2019 after the delivery of Boeing 787-9s to Qatar Airways during the same period.
In May 2019 the airline said that due to delays in the delivery of Qatar Airways' Boeing 787-9s, the planned transfer of Qatar's Boeing 787-8s to Air Italy had been delayed, resulting in Air Italy choosing instead to expand its long-haul operations with additional Airbus A330s from Qatar Airways. Additionally, after the airline's first three Boeing 737 MAX 8s were grounded, the possibility of transitioning to an Airbus narrowbody fleet was considered.
Business class is offered on Air Italy's Airbus A330 and Boeing 737 MAX aircraft. Business class on the Airbus A330 is configured with flat bed seats in a 2-2-2 layout, while the Boeing 737 MAX is configured with seats in a 3-3 layout identical to that of economy class, but with the middle seat blocked.

All business class seats are also equipped with AC power ports.

AC power ports are available, but only on the airline's Airbus A330 and Boeing 737 MAX aircraft. On medium and long-haul flights, a complementary meal is served, while short-haul flights offer a complementary drinks service with additional snacks.
